Why I Work Here

Why do I work here?  Because of my love of snow and today is a perfect example of how perfect a day could be.  Sunshine and light fluffy snow.  Picture perfect.  It’s a great way to unwind after the weekend … and get ready for next weekend.  It’s Boy Scout Winter Merit Badge day this Saturday.  Cannot wait!

A few laps on the snow today.
~Jess & Colt

Fluffy Snow

Image may contain: 2 people, including Jessica Polich, people smiling, selfie and closeupFluffy snow this morning!  Nothing better than a few inches of fluffy snow over the groom.  It’s going to be a perfect day!  High of 28 and 4 more inches of snow expected today.  No wind either.  It’s Girl Scout Adventure day so I get to hit the slopes all day with these ladies.  I can’t wait!  A day on snow will build up an appetite and I have a date with the cutest skier at Homestead tonight for BBQ dinner, tubing and sleigh ride.  Can’t wait!

Do what you love, love what you do!

Ski Brule Song

Funday!We were there!

Crashing through the snow
During a snowy winter day
Over the hills of Ski Brule
Laughing all the way

Watching out for Big Scary Bears
As we board and ski into the Sunrise
And the Otters sure do slide
Like gliding in Maple Syrup

Following Snow Shoe hares
As they travel through the Rapids
It’s a Doodle of a day
Making tracks through the Timbers

Hoping we don’t hit a Log Jam
Going toward the Hill of Bambi Bunnies
We head toward Homestead and the North Forty
In hopes of Hot Cider

It’s a Double Doodle of a day
As it Spills-a-Way from Whitewater
Oh what fun it is to ski and board
On a snowy Ski Brule Day!
