Closed On Wednesdays???

We've had some good snowy days recently up on Mt. Ashland and today was forecast to be mild and partly sunny.

The perfect day to get out my old skis, vacuum the mud-wasps' nests out of my ski boots, and hit the slopes.

Right?

Wrong.

Due to the recession, Mt. Ashland is closed on Wednesdays.

WHEN does anything ever close on a Wednesday?!?

The weather was perfect and the snow was perfect.... but... "come back tomorrow" is all I heard from the few staff working there today.

So I will...

Gorgeous photos!

How disappointing that it was closed for the day.

Is that ground fog in the top pictures - like a snow sea?

I like the tree photo. How strange to close a mountain.

bernita, yes, low fog, like a cumulous ocean...

wow. The first two photos look like you could ski on the clouds.
Probably not recommended, though, eh?
