Evenings At Higley End - 3/23/15


Skiing conditions at the Park are not ideal, so we have decided to end this year's Evenings at Higley.  The Lodge will close at its normal time (3:00 on Weekdays) tomorrow (Tuesday) and beyond.  That said, the Park is open until 7:00, so those wishing to take advantage of the end of season conditions in the late afternoons will be able to, just without access to the Lodge.

Again, thanks to everyone -- staff, volunteers, and contributing members.  We now have 79 member households -- thank you very much.  If you're not a member yet, perhaps you want to put us over 80, or even help make that 100 members goal.

Trail conditions are updated courtesy of Ed & Judy Fuhr:


The Park received 2" of snow by 6:00P.M..  At that time it was still snowing.  The Park road was good.  Where bare spots had been cover was very thin or absent.  Anyone time to get to the Park early in the day on Thurs. should have some good skiing.



April 2014, can you believe it?

Ed, showing his form!

Perfect conditions!
