Everyone is praying for a good snow season after last years “worst in memory”.  Both the resort and the state rely on good snow pack. The resorts for skiing, and the state for irrigation, wetlands and fire protection.  The fall has seen fairly consistent precipitation compared to last year when it seemed the tap shut off September 1.  So far we’ve had two good snows.  5” two weeks ago and 16” yesterday.  The resort is also gearing up to make snow as the nightime temps are now getting to be consistently in the teens.  Those of you in Texas and other points south, with your AC still on probably find this a bit hard to fathom!


Our progress has slowed a bit.  Seems that with the shorter days, the colder weather it’s harder to work as hard or as long.  I spent much of the past week welding brackets and fabricating the railings for the bunkbeds.  The main railings use old skis as you can see in the photos below.  Need to make stairs for both sets.  I’ll cut templates from cardboard this morning to see what wood I’ll need.

Also welded up a frame for the small table on the rental level. This is the one where the stump will be the support.

The wood wall in the lower ski room is waiting on more wood, but 70% finished.  We then have ski racks to hange, finish trim etc.

Been watching the thermal performance of the house.  We keep the house relatively cool, which doesn’t feel uncomfortable in a dry climate. But so far we are using about 2 gallons of propane a day - to heat 6500 sq.ft. Will be interesting to see what happens as the weather turns colder.  When the sun is out, the south-facing windows bring in a tremendous amount of heat now sun is lower in the sky.  That has worked out as planned and contributes a lot to the lower energy usage.
