Despite historically low snowfall during the 2009-2010 ski season coupled with a challenging economy, Vail Resorts has taken positive strides with their earnings report released today at the close of their fiscal year. Some detailed highlights follow below. The company's CEO, Rob Katz, cited some encouraging signs heading into the 2010-2011 season including: improved season pass sales, the opening of One Ski Hill Place in Breckenridge which adds on-mountain amenities including a 20,000 square foot skier restaurant, the Ski Hill Grill and an après ski venue, the T-Bar as well as the launch of EpicMix, a revolutionary new online, mobile and social media application that allows guests to digitally capture and share their skiing experience.

It's official, Breckenridge Ski Resort announced this week that it will debut a 22 foot Pipe in their newly made-over Freeway Terrain Park this winter at the ski area. The already "award-winning" park will launch during the Dew Tour, December 16-19, 2010 at the ski resort.

Fall is upon us. The Aspen trees are starting their annual display of brilliant yellows, oranges and reds. The evenings are cool and the nights, just down-right cold! Yep, the garden hose was frozen yesterday morning! That's the signal for us that it's time to blow out the irrigation, and start picking up stuff you don't want covered up for the winter.

The leaves are beginning to change with the hint of crispness in the air and peak foliage in Summit County is expected the third week in September.

We prayed for rain and it came, hard and often. We’re accustomed to the southwest monsoon season bringing precipitation on a daily basis to our area, but not to this degree. Some rivers became unfishable. Most rivers in sections were turbid. Luckily for us, those conditions lasted less than a week. In some places, over 8 inches of rain fell in a two week period!

Precipitation brought the Middle Fork’s flows to run off levels. The Blue, Colorado, Arkansas, and numerous smaller streams were also affected in sections by the heavy rains. Flash flood warnings were issued six straight days in our area valleys. And then we dried out. River flows dropped. Along the Middle Fork, fishing was incredible. Large fish were showing themselves everywhere.
