Sunrise and Snowbowl to Open this Weekend

Looks like winter is not over. The latest winter storm dumped over 5 feet at Sunrise and better than 3 feet at Snowbowl. This would have been the first time in several decades that Snowbowl failed to open for at least a day in a season.

Who knows how long either resort will remain open, but this gives the folks in Flag that have season passes at least something for their $400. What a bummer for the folks that enjoyed last year's 450" season only to be rewarded with ONE SKI DAY for 2006. It may be a ski week, but nonetheless, it has been brutal for the SouthWest this year.

My shoulder is still aching and I smell of Icy Hot from my knee and shoulder. I am sore, I am tired, I am disappointed that I only skied two days this weekend instead of four, and more than anything, I am glad to sleep in my fat king sized bed at home and hopefully heal my aching body.

Sunday is shaping up to be a day to remember. Epic Pow. Trying some new tricks. I wasn't the only one that caught an Edge on Sunday. The Cardinals caught one too, took $30M over four years, but the Cards made their single biggest signing in the last 17 years in the desert. Oh, yeah, and they hosed Indy in the process. And I select my new seats in Glendale on April 4th. I have the Draft, NBA Playoffs, mini-camps, and a long summer in Brian Head to look forward to. Then the NFL and Ski Seasons. 2006-07 is around the corner.
