Bear Aware

Another sighting this week of the large black bear that is hanging around on Ponderosa. Bring your bear bells for hiking.

Long Weekend Coming Up

First things first - I don't have anything to report on the ski operations, so don't bother asking. Yes there are people coming up and looking around, yes there is dialogue going on between the seller and prospective investors, but I am not in the loop, and have no desire to get involved in speculation. When Matt tells me that money is in place and work begins on maintenance, I will happily let you know.

The weather has been great this week, good for working outside. Below you will see one bold little zinnia that finally bloomed in Terry's garden, some cattle moving in a downhill direction, a few hanging around the cattle guard, on the wrong side.

Fall in the air?

Last week, I spotted a couple of small Tamarack trees that already had yellow needles. This morning it is 9C at 9:30am, and the ground had a really good soaking last night. It feels like fall.

Village Activity

Nice to have so many cabin owners spending time on the mountain. It took me two hours to get home tonight from the time I got back to the village. Great to see V & S on the mountain this week. "Welcome Home", Roger and Lisa.

Oh, and the "witch" is coming soon..............

Terry's Garden

Kevin and Terry have done an amazing job on their home and their yard. Every time I go by, there is another little touch - photos from the garden tonight.

Campfire Ban

Effective noon today - campfire ban in effect for the South East Fire Centre. No campfires at Baldy.

There was a small fire yesterday near Canyon Road , not far from the Canyon Bridge. There was a quick response and I couldn't find any smoke there this morning.

Many cabins were occupied over the long weekend - come on up - much cooler than the valley.

Nothing New This Week

The strata council has sent out a mailing to cabin owners*, and  home page has links to the company retained to sell the ski area.

When there is money to work with, work underway, and confirmation for the upcoming season, I will be happy to post things for you. In the meantime, I dread little bits of news - I do not appreciate reporters and camera men showing up at my door unannounced.

*Reminder that if you don't want to wait for mail from strata - there is a consent form to sign, and they will send your stuff by e-mail.
