After a long, silent and quiet summer the mtn and village are in full swing, rapidly gearing up for what is going to be a great rebounding winter

Opening day for the mountain is Dec 21st and winter has definitely arrived with a vengeance.  It’s been snowing often and a lot, with opening day less than three weeks away; I fully expect for some its never soon enough and seems like an eternity away, yet for others it’s just around the corner.

The mtn is shaping up nicely, we have had very little need or opportunity to make any snow so far this year as Mother Nature appears to be taking control.

Mattly has been updating the snow report on a regular basis please check it out!!  On Saturday the base peaked at 40” and now 24 hrs later its settle to 35” today.  How refreshing to have 3 ft of snow on the ground by Dec 1st. You can also follow him on Twitter by clicking here.

The Thanksgiving holiday saw Bear Valley Cross Country and Adventure Center open for business (& now open weekends only, call ahead 753-2834) , the holiday Winter Fest was high action with a variety of activities including a fashion show, movie, wine and open houses being hosted by local businesses.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed, toes, legs & arms crossed that the current weather patterns are the trend and not – ahh well lets just leave it at that – a trend!

For those who knew I was gone, I’m back, for those who didn’t know I was gone – I’m still here.  Cheers, GM
