“Winter Storm Warning” — snow is on the way

There’s nothing indefinite about our weather forecast for tomorrow:

121308-forecast

100% chance of precipitation doesn’t leave us with many questions about the day ahead. It will snow.  For sure. A lot.

And blow. And be cold.  Ahhh, winter!

Years of long freeway commutes to my teaching job trained me to dread snow; snow only meant a horrendous drive to or from work.  But a great ski season at Bearskin depends on getting a few nice, big blizzards, so a new mindset is required.  It doesn’t come easy. Quinn is eager to have enough snow to groom.  Bob can’t wait to run his new plow.  Kaitlin spent her last winters in Taiwan, so she’s enthusiastic about experiencing a Minnesota-style blizzard again. And I just think….why didn’t we buy a resort in Hawaii?   

No palm trees and coconuts here.  We have been slowly accumulating a few inches of snow each week, but it honestly isn’t enough to be very good skiing yet.  Looks like that should change on Sunday. Real winter is finally here, just in time for all the post-Christmas skiers. We’ll keep you updated on the outcome of this snowstorm, but with luck (yeah, see how hard I’m trying?) Sunday should bring us the snow we need to make winter at Bearskin the memorable experience our guests come here for.

Addendum, Sunday — time stamp is EST, snow is moving NE:
