The Boxing Day Blizzard of 2010 turned out to be a bit of a dud, but luckily the exploding transformer by the soccer field provided us with some excitement on Sunday night. Day crewers booted back up to help The Queen of Darkness and our Night crew brethren deal with the chaos that ensues when lights go out with a fully loaded Chair One. We’re currently knee-deep in holiday break courtesy rides above the pogonip that covers the valley.
Patrollers have been getting edgy because we haven’t been able to blow anything up for too long. That should change in the next couple of days. Any change is welcome after a three-week dry spell. The first of it isn’t going to stick but, it should make some pretty cool avalanches.
