Behind the Construction: Horizon Flow Project

Hear ye, hear ye!

I’ve trudged my way through the dirt, rocks and construction debris to fearlessly snag some footage of the Horizon Flow Project in action. (I'm sure my bravery impresses you.) I hope you find it informative.

Oh, and even though I stayed outside the roped-off area, flip flops are not proper “trudging around construction site” footwear… just so you know.

Till next time,

Peace out, summertime.

This week marked the last day of summer. Some people dread the approaching winter months – clearly, they’ve never been skiing or snowboarding. Though, summer is good for a few things… like pretty pictures and trail improvements.

Whether you’re using a fancy DSLR or a beater digital camera, a ski resort in the summertime makes it easy to snap some snazzy photos. Check ‘em out below.

In other news, the Horizon Flow Project is coming along nicely. The construction site looks completely different since I was there last (a little over a week ago). It’s hard to really grasp what’s going on from your computer chair, as the pictures don’t really do it justice. No worries - I’ve got you covered. *cough.. video footage ..cough* Stay tuned.

Oh, and seasonal temps are headed our way next week – highs in the 60’s, lows in the 40’s. It’s coming. Get excited.

Later skaters,

Nice to meet ya

Hi, I'm Halley. I'll be bringing you all that is happening at Mountain Creek. As you might have noticed, this is our new blog which I'll be updating here 'n there as the year progresses to keep you in the know. Soon, we'll be best buds. I'll start thinking of a secret handshake...

Anyway, I wanted to tell you guys about something pretty cool going on at the Vernon peak. If you live in the area, you've probably heard the incessant pounding. If you haven't, then I've probably teased you on Facebook & Twitter with pictures of the "secret" construction.

It's not a secret... anymore.

*Drum roll* Allow me to present the Horizon Flow Project. Sounds all official, doesn't it? The construction taking place will drastically improve the flow on Horizon, especially where the trail took a sharp right turn under the bridge.

Workers are pounding away at the earth, widening the trail, smoothing out the surface and un-sharpening the sharp turns resulting in a cruise-tastic, wide open joyride.

Oh, and you may have noticed the bridge has been painted with secret Invisible Bridge Paint. (Just kidding. We took the bridge out in order to widen the trail.)

Well, that about sums it up. I hope you're as pumped about the season as I am - it's going to be awesome. Expect to see more blogs like this, photos, videos and other cool stuff here at www.mountaincreek.com & www.thankyouforshredding.com.
