Welch Village

Welch Village was a great time last weekend. It was a really nice ski slope and had most everything opened. My brother and I did learn that every resort lies when they supply the stats for their base. There is no way that Welch Village had 20 inches. I am sure there is a specific protocol for determining the base but if that was 20 inches I think soon I may see pigs fly past my window. It was a still a great time. Friday was the best day by far and it was some of the best snow we have seen. It rained on Saturday and so we headed into Minneapolis to the Mall of America, REI, Moto Primo, and back to Red Wing for a movie. We really enjoyed the whole trip. Sunday we left about noon because the slope was just a solid hard pack/ice and we had a long drive home. We ended up getting back before 8pm with plenty of time to unpack and get ready for the work week ahead.

It was a good thing that we went north because there is no way that snow creek is going to be open before Christmas. At the rate things are going I am beginning to wonder if they will ever open. 

It appears that there is big news in the works around the Foster household at the moment. A lot of things are changing in the coming weeks and despite being  a little nervous, I think it will be for the best in the end. There is a lot to get done to prepare though.
