Bitter sweet, that's all folks.

Today is always a bitter sweet day for me. It's nice to be turning the page on another great season here at Brimacombe but I am also sad that it is over. This has been one of the best weather years that I can remember, sure we were challenged at the beginning with a major ice storm shutting us down for a weekend just prior to Christmas and we had a high number of bitterly cold days, but we also had record snowfalls and sun producing many spectacular "blue bird" days on the slopes. We ran 87 operational days this year that's 12 more than last year and we are closing on the same weekend. The decision to close was once again made based on the numbers of members and guests we have been seeing out the last three weeks rather than snow conditions...we still have loads of snow however the bulk of our membership has spoken through their attendance -people have had enough. That said today was a stellar day, great attendance, loads of sunshine and my favorite event of the season..the Puddle Jump. Its great to end on a high note and I want to personally thank all of you for being a part of a season that we will talk about for many many years.

We took thousands of photos today at the puddle jump and will be uploading a bunch of them to our Facebook page today and over the next few days. I'll share a few with you here in the blog;

If you have any pictures or videos would like to share with us we would love to see them...especially GoPro videos. By sending these photos you are giving us permission to publish or use them online, in our publications or through other ways of sharing.

I'd like to thank our Management team and staff (over 350 of them!) for all of their hard work and dedication this season....You all rock, you are the face of Brimacombe!

As I hear "Last ride" being called over the radio's for the very last time this season, all I can think to write is "It's been another great season in paradise",
