Spring had a minor fake out earlier in the week. A minor spring snow stormed covered the ground around the inn with a 3 inch coating of heavy wet snow earlier in the week. Of course with temperatures soaring to the mid 60's at 1900 feet where the inn is located, it did not last long. But it was just enought to remind us that we need to pay attention to Mother Nature over the next few weeks as we work around the inn.

Spring maintenance season is upon us. We will be putting the inn on hiatus starting on Easter Sunday so we can get at our spring construction projects. We have several major projects planned, and a lot of the usual maintenance. Over the next few weeks we will be taking the kitchen down so we can put in a new floor and paint it. We also have more work planned to upgrade the owners quarters, following on to the project we started last spring. We will be busy, as is usually the case this time of year.

With the very warm weather outside, Mary has started to work to clean the gardens around the inn. She and our assistant, Nicole, were working this morning to clean the gardens at the front of the inn along Butler Road. It is way too early to begin spring planting, as many nights we are still approaching frost level temperatures, but it is not too early to begin the debris clearing from last fall and the winter.

The resort is still in full swing for skiing and riding over the Easter weekend. If you are in the mood to get some late season time in the snow, you will not be disappointed.

With a little luck, we will get out on the slopes this weekend, possibly for our ski swan song for the season before we beging construction activities.

Where ever you may be, have a great Easter weekend. Hopefully you get a chance to get outside and play in the sunshine as well.. and don't forget your sunscreen......
