Run enhancements and improvements continue this year with blasting of the "Sky Dive" traverse which will result in easier access to this run. Significant brush cutting has been made on Boomerang, Boomerang Ridge, and Linda's Run. Tree glading between Cruiser and Cedar Center has opened up some great looking lines of intermediate glades. Fallen wood clean up in the the Bear Chutes (which lead off the Bear into Boomerang) has made a huge difference in how open these glades will ski.

In addition to major run enhancements, riders will notice a well maintained snow surface thanks to the help of 2 new grooming CATS in the fleet, including a Winch CAT. This is in addition to the two new CATS that were added to the fleet last year.
