I'm finished patrolling for the week. It snowed almost all day long, every other day! Yesterday was very long and crazy busy from start to finish. We had a good team at Spruce, with 2 rookies supporting us and learning the ropes. Days like this confirm that everything for which we constantly prepare and train kicks in the instant we need those skills. The first time most of us were able to stop and relax was about 10 minutes before the lifts closed at 4:00 p.m. I have a few photos from the last couple of days that I'll post later today. Next week I'm on the schedule Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and the day after Christmas! If you're at the resort, be sure to look me up.
