‘Twas 5am in the morning, when all through Mission Ridge’s Lodge like house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a Pika (which is like a really fat mouse).
The beer mugs were placed, on the bar shelves with care
In hopes that fresh ale, soon would be there.
The skiers and riders were nestled, all snug in their beds,
While visions of recent pow days danced in their heads.
And the Groomers were humming and making many a lap,
For the Ridge was just about to wake from its off hours nap.
When over the radio arose such a clatter,
That this snow reporter set down his coffee mug, to see what twas the matter.
And what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a beautiful sun on the rise and bluebird skies drawing near.
We’ll have nice cool temps throughout the day, and a high near 17,
And awesome surface conditions that will ski like a dream.
The groomed runs are fitted with fresh corduroy pants,
And Joe the groomer said he even saw Prop Man doing a midnight snow dance.
This season our base depth measures over fifty inches of snow on the ground,
And with the whole mountain open there is plenty of room to move around .
We hope that your stockings were stuffed to the brim
And know that your tummy will surely get it’s its fill,
And look forward to soon seeing you on the hill.
Happy Holidays to you and yours from everyone here at Mission Ridge!
