Riding the Rollercoaster, and you know that I don't dance on tables..............

Well my friends, I don't really have anything to report, but since you read the blog so often..................

Several weeks ago, I was contacted by one of the prospective buyers - he outlined his plans to me, and indicated that he would be closing a deal very soon. Well, "very soon" has passed from my perspective, and it appears that his deal did not complete.

I am still hopeful, as there is a lot of "stuff" going on in the background.

Rollercoasters aren't fun for me , MMT, his family, and the team that will be needed to get things running in a short time frame.

Fingers still crossed.

Snowshoe/Cross Country Trails Wow - Thank-you Wayne and Jayne

I knew that Wayne and Jayne were hiking a lot this summer, but just found out that those hikes included brush and chainsaws! They have cleaned up most of the trails. You'll notice a huge improvement when you strap on your snowshoes this winter.

I first met Wayne in 1977, when the "Clarke Hilton" and my cabin were both under construction. Wayne and Jayne are now full-timers at Baldy.

I will give them the maps from Paul and Dave, and hopefully we will have updated maps available soon. They have used a lot of flagging tape to improve the trail marking.

Blog Hits

The daily blog hits are much higher than normal for this time of year. Of course that includes a "Baldy Snowbird" down south, and a "Baldy Babe" in Kirkland - both checking several times a day.

I don't have any news for you, and I guarantee that I am way more anxious than you are to hear some good news.

A little bit of white stuff up top....

Thanksgiving Weekend

The Strata AGM is on Saturday. If you aren't attending, please consider sending a proxy. We've had a few meetings over the years when we have not had enough for a quorum.

Still waiting on the news we all want to hear - still looks hopeful . Planning is ongoing for people and resources needed to get the hill ready in a compressed time frame.

Fingers crossed.

I'm not dancing on the table yet...............

For those of you jumping for joy with the postings of Castanet.net, and Kelownanow.com, I am waiting for official confirmation and press releases. I am aware that there has been a deal in the works for awhile now - one of the principals has contacted me and discussed the plans.

I talked to Matt at 5:00pm today. He did not have anything to report to me, although his cell phone mail box had filled while he was at the mountain today.

As for the articles - read them for yourselves - kelownanow.com seems to think our cabins are part of the deal.   lol.

Hearing that a deal is imminent is something we have heard many times before. I will post as soon as I have something to "bank on!"

Fingers crossed.

Disgusting Mess, Lodge Clean-up

I've held off posting about the lodge break in that happened awhile ago, but after today's clean-up, here it is.

Thank-you Matt, Sam, Laird, Kevin and Terry for pitching in for the clean-up of the lodge. The lodge was broken into awhile ago, and some young people made a huge mess. The most disgusting was the washrooms - water was off. I couldn't go near them, but filled many, many buckets with water, and donated bleach to the cause. MMT, you are amazing.

I wouldn't be surprised if the perpetrators read the blog - all indications are that they have been here before. It looks like you had a good time - unfortunately the empties you left will not pay for the pool table cloth you wrecked with candle wax - ....and you left something behind..........
