First Snowfall at BMSA

Got a note from Beth Clark at Brokeback Mountain Ski Area and they have received their first snowfall of the year. They are actively making snow and hoping for a mid-November opening.

Beth e-mailed me a copy of some recent press clippings about some improvements they are looking to make over the next two years. It seems that the movie has brought in a fairly large influx of new business and they are struggling to keep up.

Sounds like they want to expand a new area on the backside of Jack's Notch near the Uranus lift. Possibly a used triple or even a quad. Folks are hiking to get first tracks on Jack's Notch now when the upper runs get tracked up.

BMSA apparently has an old flavor to it, but isn't getting a lot of media attention. I am hoping to take a trip through when I head to Jackson Hole this year. Beth offered to comp my trip if I would give them some much needed PR. They sound like an interesting resort and they have a 2000' vertical drop and great terrain. A little remote, but that is why they have the old school flavor.
