Last week was so warm and toasty, with perfect days for hiking and getting ready for the season.  It was beginning to look a bit dubious that the resort would open on the projected date, but now all that has changed, as the resort has received over  46” of  Essential freshness in the past 3 days.   I drove down Big Cottonwood last night late and I can tell you that there is a lot of snow and the drive down was sketchy in the extreme.  The lake effect has kicked in and is still delivering impulses as I write this at Noon on  Sunday.  The work is being done to get the resort ready to go and it is sure to be one of the epic openers.   Facebook shots of the folks who hiked for turns shows just how good it is already.   While I am thinking of it, the lower canyon is really developing the Black Ice issue in a big way, so even if the road looks dry, moisture has laid in overnight and is just waiting for you, so be advised when going up and coming down.  I will get some real time shots this week, when I go up to load the locker, so stay tuned for the beginning of the daily posts.  Here is a shot   that illustrates the NOW MOMENT.  Remember, it is all in the hands!!!  Ciao!!
