  1. Looks good. No reason why all those chairs won’t be open this weekend ,,, Even Silverado… But I’m suspecting they won’t !

    1. Granite Chief tomorrow! Everything is on the schedule except Silverado which needs way more snow at the bottom. Now just need bodies to swing the chairs.

Got an opinion? Let us know...
