See You Next Year!

Dearly beloved,

We gather here today to mourn, nay, to celebrate the memory of the remarkable but all-too-brief life of the 2009-2010 ski season at Ski Butternut.

With cold determination, it sprung to life in December, and thanks to the kindness and blessings of a generous Mother Nature, and the impressive skills of our snowmaking and grooming crews, it blossomed into full maturity, with deep coverage, epic conditions, and the full assortment of trails, terrain parks, and tubing chutes by Christmas.

Consistently alluring and seasonably cool, but without the bitter and icy cold demeanor that often typifies a New England winter, this ski season practically hypnotized us to shirk our duties and neglect all other ‘essential’ tasks in the singular pursuit of ski and board nirvana.

We may have missed out on the once-in-a-lifetime snowstorms that crippled our nation’s capital, but so, too, did we avoid the dreaded mid-winter thaw and the even curiouser phenomenon euphemistically known as ‘liquid sunshine’ or ‘clear snow’ until its final days.

But, alas, March brought with it the summer, though Punxsutawney Phil assured us it would not, and the calendar insisted it was still months away. And though we fought triumphantly to delay the inevitable, holding on with mere fingertips to the last vestiges of winter and even into the first days of spring, we could not sustain the life of this ski season for even one moment longer.

2009-2010 ski season, you were a charmer, a shining beacon of awesomeness and wonder, and you will be deeply, deeply missed…at least until Winter 2010-2011 comes around!

Lastly, I would be remiss if I failed to thank our staff for helping ski season 2009-2010 achieve its full potential, and, of course, if I failed to thank our loyal guests who’ve made possible seasons past and present, and help us to envision many more seasons to come.
