Mt Werner Opens for the 2011/2012 Winter Season

Mt. Werner is now officially open for the winter!  Everyone was out this morning and excited to be a part of 2011-12's inaugural day.  The Winter Sports Club passed out candy and hot cocoa in the lift line while everyone was serenaded by The Yampa Valley Boys, a country western band, as they boarded the gondola.  Hearing the excitement from groups of people as we skied around the mountain reminded us of how fortunate we were to be on the mountain for opening day and we added a few whoops and hollers of our own as we took to the slopes. The conditions were great.  It was obvious the crews worked hard to get the perfect corduroy ready for the first runs of the season.  To our surprise there were even a few un-groomed runs that were open, which put our legs to the test with some opening day powder.  I've included a couple of pictures below, hope you enjoy them and see you out here soon!
