Kicked off the season with a clear and cold day at the Peaks. Fantastic snow conditions for this time of the season, hats off to all the snow makers and groomer, first class job. Rivyr , Doug and Kate all broke in new sets of skis today, adults all rode their old gear with the exception of Scott and his new Salomon ski boots. Looks like another great season ahead.
