Hi everyone.

More snowfall so another update as we get closer to the opening date - a week on Saturday.

It's funny... it always seems 'too late' somehow, but then it all seems to make more sense with the unpredictability of late November and early December and as we approach the date. If we get the snowfall that is on the forecast - some on Friday and then again next week - things should be approaching just right as that opening date approaches. And the resort can hopefully get off to a kicking start!

I'll update you again before then.
