The weather was perfect this weekend for another Oktoberfest celebration at the Bird. I went up on both days to soak up as much of the festive feel as I could.  Up on the peak The Summit facility was really going off with music, fun and delightful temps. at 11,000′.  Here is the Pizza Makers getting ready to fire up the first pie of the day as well as some struddle that was waiting to go in the oven.  The new T Shirt store is a great feature, with the official Snowbird Ski Patrol shirts available.  They have all new styles for this season so check it out.  DSC03957Here is Nan, who has the best office view of anyone anywhere.  DSC03958Out on the deck, there was music and a full beer facility all set up.  There are very comfortable chairs on which to lounge at high altitude, looking down on the Valley far below.   DSC03959Great people make places great and having so many amazing folks there to make the experience special is a real treat.  Down on the Plaza I got this shot of Brittany and Gabriella inviting DSC03961guests to enjoy lunch at the Forklift Restaurant, that has very nice patio dining.  I particularly like the Chicken Pesto Sandwich,  which I try to make, but never get it to taste as good as they serve at the Forklift.   While it is still Summer, and the temps. in the Valley are still in the 90’s, I can’t help but think of the beach and the waves that break.  Here is a shot of one of the cool throwing peaks I took last Winter.  DSC02485Here is another bomb that is breaking fast and hard, but oh so glassy!!DSC02477While I was walking out for the day, I visited with my friend Kristen, who makes these organic hand made skin products with Hawaiian Lavender as well as other floral products.  I tried it out and loved the feel.  Check out her booth as you walk through the Gates it is right up front.  Be sure to get up to the peak and enjoy the new facility and festivities that are happening there. DSC03962I will be going up again next week, so say hi if you see me, and be sure to stay for the great music on Chickadee.   Stay Frosty!!
