Apres ski at the Bear River Bar and Grill


Entertainment  and bronze statue of famous local identity … Billy Kidd

This is the busiest weekend of the season (President’s Day long weekend) with an estimated 12000 skiers on the mountain today. The place has really come to life and the vibe around town is fantastic. We thought we might avoid the morning crush by getting to the gondola just before the 8:30am opening. There was already a queue of several hundred but it was only a 10 minute wait to get aboard the high speed 8 person gondola car. The mountain is so huge that the crowds quickly spread out and we we skiing on runs with only a few other people. After the past couple of days of snowfall the runs were groomed to perfection. Quite a few of the black diamond runs were groomed so we had a blast. The weather was perfect … blue skies, no wind and temp of about -10.

I think the usual hot bath, beer/burbon, wine, dinner and Baileys should top of a great day.
