 *  Spring skiing is the best time of the year for skiing and riding.  The snow is perfect, the temperature is mild and everyone is ready to celebrate the ski season and party.  With John's birthday in the rear view mirror, ski buddy Otto's 89 birthday on March 12th and Buffy's birthday on March 14th there are plenty of reasons to celebrate and party.  On Tuesday, March 8th the die hards got together on the deck of Mountain Creek South to celebrate and Buffy and John returned the next day to enjoy a snack with Mountain Creek staffers Kyle and Corin.  We are blessed!

*  How did we make out in the snow storm of Monday and Tuesday, February 1st and 2nd?  The photos below tell the story.  According to our Snow Man measuring guide we had approximately 2 feet.  We dug out late afternoon on February 2nd so we could hit the slopes at Mountain Creek on on Wednesday February 3rd.


The December 17th snow storm was 20"

*  When she is not skiing or cookie and exotic dinner, Buffy continues to grow her knitting business, Buffy's Bargains.  The recent invention of a spindle rack for up to 14 different color bobbins has made it easier to make multicolored items such as the golf club cover being produced by Buffy.  Her Yoda doll has become a favorite.  Many of the items ranging from baby blankets, hats and booties to golf club covers are made to order.

*  Christmas eve day was celebrated skiing, Zooming with family, enjoying a delicious flounder stuffed with crab meat dinner and watching the 1946 Christmas classic It's a Wonderful Life".   It rained Christmas Day causing Buffy and John to miss Christmas Day skiing for the first time in recent memory.  However Zooming with son Brad and family and a delicious prime rib dinner made the day.  We are blessed and thank God every day for our health, fun activities, friends and family.

*  One of the fun things about skiing is sharing a great day on the slopes with friends.  Buffy and John have been ski racing and skiing with the Howe family for many years.  Now the three bothers are enjoying free skiing, Tom with his wife Heidi and their two sons Landon and Lucas with uncle Richie providing some coaching support.

*  Mother nature delivered an early Christmas gift - over 15" of snow at Hidden Valley.  The good news is that the Mountain Creek Ski Resort would open on Thursday, December 17th to great powder conditions, but the bad news was that  Buffy and John were snowed in on top of Hidden Valley and would miss opening day for the first time in recent memory.  However they were ready for the lifts to open on the second day.

*  On Tuesday, December 15, 2020 Buffy and John took the final steps in getting ready for the 2021 ski season by picking up their season ski passes.  They celebrated the event with Mountain Creek Assistant General Manager Evan Kovach and two ski buddies from West Milford, Lauren and Paul Ferguson.

*  Buffy and John are excited that the 2020 - 2021 skis season is about to begin.  To kick off the new ski season Buffy & John visited BIGSnow, America's 1st indoor ski area, to get in a few warm up runs.  It was a great day followed by a safe Outbacks celebration of another fun day and the coming Holiday season.
