For those of you who have followed my Blog over the past few years, you know that I like to show pictures to illustrate the kind of day we had here at Brimacombe. I think this photo of the thermometer at the top of T-bar 2 illustrates it well...keep in mind, this was taken later in the afternoon, after it had "warmed up" a bit...

Temperature and wind aside, it was a great weekend on the hill. The West side of our facility opened Saturday with the Clubhouse run, and the Promenade run opened today. A warm fire burned in our West Clubhouse for our members and guests wanting to get out of the chill and snow making was in full force for the last few days (shut down for most of today due to high wind). Our Pee Wee Ski Camp counselors received some training at the Pee Wee Ski Camp Headquarters in anticipation of next weekends program start up and the Canadian Association of Disabled Skiers held their volunteer on-hill training session today in preparation for the season ahead. There is never a dull moment here at Brimacombe no matter how low the mercury dips.
