Sunrise, AZ opens for 2005-2006

Sunrise, AZ is open for the season with what amounts to one run (actually 4, but you cannot count "Bunny Hill" as a run and the rest are all one run with a couple of little shortcuts).

Snowbowl is still locked in their battle with mother nature (no snow) and the local Indian tribes (the mountain is their holy land) so they have not gotten snowmaking capabilities for this year. The Four Corners region is locked in a high pressure system that is keeping the storm track off to the north and nothing on the immediate horizon is changing that.

I spent Thanksgiving at home for the first time in three years and Christmas isn't looking much better. I'll be damned if I want to spend Valentines Day with my wife instead of skiing, so make with the snow already!
