It has been a busy few days here at the Brim, opening day followed by a sizable dump of natural snow, cold snowmaking temperatures and last minute tasks on our new chair have kept us hopping.

I am please to officially announce that our brand new quad chair lift with loading conveyor "Main Street" received it's approval to open for the public today around noon. The lift was soon filled with excited riders who had been waiting patiently for us to take down the "lift closed" sign.

...and finally, the lift opens to the general public.

With winter finally "arriving" we are working hard to get more terrain open, we currently have Standard, Bambi and the Piggy Bank terrain park open, tomorrow should see the opening of Bunny Blvd and if all goes well our plan is to have Ladies Downhill and the Bowl Chair open for Sunday December 30, 2012. We have continually been pumping out the snow in the VAULT terrain park as well and will have it open as soon as we can. From here, our targets are set on Ben's Bump, the Bowl, Pete's Elbow and working west to get all of the terrain open that we require for our many programs and activities.
Here are a few shots of the PIGGY BANK terrain park.
