Crazy Week at Brian Head

I was planning on leaving for the condo on Tuesday morning and making preparations for the trip Monday afternoon. All the sudden I get a call from my grandmother in Montana's house. Imagine my surprise when answering to find out that my little brother and his wife are on the outs (again) and he was needing a place to stay.

Long story short, he flew in on Tuesday AM and has been working like a dog at the condo with me. I keep his snowboard and boots in the downstairs closet for such emergencies as his wife and him fighting, so he is down with some holiday skiing. He worked off most of a season pass doing floors and drywall in the condo this week.

The blogging has been light because we have the entire place torn up and have been working 12-16 hour days doing remodel work, but the lift just opened to the top of Giant Steps today at Brian Head and the snow looks... well, adequate. We are waiting for one good storm to come through and get things kicked off.

I will be posting some new pictures shortly. We tore out the old toilet upstairs and for lack of furniture, were using it for a coffee table. The place was a total disaster, but the clubhouse hot-tub sure felt nice after a hard day's work. It is a good thing the conditions are so crappy, or we would have gotten nothing done. I am heading back up with my brother and dad on Tuesday for some more work.
