Open House--A preview of the season

The Open House last Saturday was fun! We had our ski/snowboard swap, and people were excited to buy some new equipment. In the rental shop we had our theatre set up and a Warren Miller film was playing. Local vendors were here selling equipment and snow gear. Everyone got to enjoy pizza, cookies, and refreshments. It was a good day. 

*We would like to thank Raphael's Bakery for providing the yummy cookies, Pepsi for the pop, The Bike Guy, Martin's Ski Shop, No Comply, The Ski Patrol for putting on a great event, Bev for making a delicious meal for the workers, and we would like to thank everyone who came out!
