The Longest Two Months of the Year

Labor Day marks the end of summer. The leaves start turning and the waiting game intensifies. Will it snow early and provide a solid base? Who will be the first to open?

Roughly two months remain before A-Basin and Loveland open their lifts for the first time in 2006-07. I have some winter preparations to complete like finishing the downstairs bathroom at the condo and getting the heater set to keep the place warm enough to prevent broken pipes.

This has been an unusually wet monsoon in Phoenix and as posted previously may have a weak El Nino. All of these things make me hopeful for a 100% open Brian Head by Mid-November. I have Jackson's new skis mounted and ready. Now we wait.
