The Twelve Days of Christmabutternutukkah

Frankly, I think someone must’ve been very naughty this year. Last year, we made it atop the nice list, and we were rewarded with a solid early cold spell, followed by feet and feet of snow. This year, I think we got the lump of coal.

Nonetheless, it’s time to be festive, and to be thankful for what we’ve got. Even without a single major snowstorm this December, and with unseasonably warm weather all month, we’ve managed to open at least 14 of our 22 trails thanks to the valiant efforts of our skilled snowmaking team. We’ve got a pretty great park set up already (and it’ll keep getting even better). And we’re still giddy-as-Christmas-morning each time we snap into our skis and boards to take a few runs.

So, in the spirit of the season, I wish you all a very happy holiday (be it Christmas, Chanukah, Solstice, Kwanzaa, or any celebration I’ve unintentionally omitted) and good things to come in the New Year. Let’s all pray for peace on earth, good will to all humankind…and feet upon feet of the fluffy white stuff.

And now, without further ado, my 2nd Annual Festive Poem/Song:
