Located in the east end of the day lodge, Castle's new Barnaby Steakhouse and Fireside Lounge doesn't have a bad seat in it. From every table, you can see Barnaby Ridge. Serving plate dinners in the evening and a buffet at lunch, the restaurant's menu will specialize in hearty après ski fare from seafood to steaks. Meanwhile, with 52 runs currently open for skiing and riding - including Gambler, Blazing Saddle, and Lone Star chutes - Castle entered daily operation with wind sifted boot top powder in its upper echelons funneling into groomers on the bottom. Their new Huckleberry chair and terrain is expected to open soon. As their snow reporter waxed, "Those midweek days of great riding and no line-ups have arrived!"
