A reader wrote in on the last post asking a question regarding our grooming schedule. I'll try my best to explain what we've been up to.

At the end of the day, ski patrol puts together a list of what they'd like groomed and meets with our slope maintenance crew as they are coming on their shift. The runs are inspected every day as conditions change every day. With the warm temperatures lately we have to be very careful with what we choose to groom. Obviously, the green runs will always be groomed every night. There are some locations on the mountain that you don't want to groom every night, especially when it's warm because this can actually do more harm than good to the snow.

You've probably noticed we've been grooming only half of Bill's Run on weekdays this season. This is mainly to try and keep everyone happy. We get guests comments that request us to stop grooming so much and then the very next comment is asking us to groom much more. Some people like bumps, some like groomed, some want a little of both. We try to please as many people as possible while putting out the best product possible.

As always, we do listen to what you have to say. Leave a comment and tell us what you think. Do we groom too much, not enough, or is it juuuuust right?
