Letter: Looking forward to skiing

Thanks to all those involved with the continuous operation of the Phoenix ski area, writes Dave Doumont.

On Dec. 16, I took a drive to the Phoenix ski area and hiked some of the runs. Due to the recent mild weather the early snow had settle dto a base of approximately six inches. I was most impressed with the brushing job completed this past year. Great work!

With the runs brushed out as they are and the snow cats grooming an additional snowfall, we can look forward to another good year at Phoenix. Short, yes, but sweet.

Being oen of the original people of the Phoenix ski area, I never imagined the runs of Phoenix to be in such great condition.

Thanks to all those involved with the continuous operation of the Phoenix ski area.

Dave Doumont, Christina Lake
