Highlands rocks

I was just thinking the other day about ski gangs of the past, and thought it was kind of ironic that where one of the Buckaroos is now in charge, skiing is king, and fun is the name of the game.

Hats off to Ron and his gang out at the Highlands. Your bowling party last weekend is just the tip of the iceberg, as you guys have continued to show the rest of the industry what it is all about. Highlands rocks, and the Bowl is the best skiing on the planet.

And a special hats off to you patrollers. As I watched you guys huck rucks of soda and food up the Bowl the other day, it really set in: you guys take your job well beyond the normal call of duty and it is awesome to watch you all climb your corporate ladder. Thanks.
