Oh the pressure to turn it all around on January 1st. No more holiday
treats. Physical fitness. Financial fitness. Less stress. More free time.
There’s a million mandates that we impose on ourselves because the new year

As we regroup after a busy holiday season our attentions go to how we can
be better this year. Last year was a breakthrough year for us. More people ,

patronage and kind words. We owe you. And our gratitude to you is our
resolution. Every day.

challenge to be sure but the creative spirit is alive and well up on the
mountain and in the valley corridor and the people that come to ski here
have discovered another depth of diversity that this valley can provide. We
can offer so much more even when Mother Nature isn’t cooperating.
This month’s “under our noses” pick is Bragg Hill. You climb up that
steep road and you are rewarded with a uniquely spectacular view of the
valley looking south down the valley corridor. All the mountains are right
there and so is the iconic Bragg Hill barn. Park at the cemetery and walk
the network of roads up there and enjoy the fabulous panoramas that Bragg
Enjoy the snow, all the new Christmas books and gifts, and settle into what is going to be a great winter. Come in and stand around Burnie, our wood stove, for a while. It’s where great minds meet and mittens dry!
