Cruising Through Spring
There isn't really much to report as far and things FAR go, but I had a few pictures I didn't know what to do with, so I thought I would stick them in a report.
Spring is delightful around here (when it isn't raining), with nice lush green valleys, snow capped peaks and lots of wild life. The snow has gone up far enough and at least some trails are dry enough for some great mountain biking and at least low level hiking. While I have seen lots of tracks and scat, I am pleased to report that so far I have managed to avoid seeing even a single bear this season. Not so with our ungulate friends though, who seem particularly fond of hanging out near the house, thereby making my gardening wife rather nervous. We have one cat that for some reason fascinates deer and they can be particularly bold in trying to get close to him. He tolerates this with typical cat disdain and no apparent concern.
Anyone interested in the final version of the Official Community Plan for the ski hill, can find a copy on our community association site at http://fsvca.redtree.com. This has now been passed by the Regional District and barring something unforeseen should go into effect in early July.
The last rumours I heard had the new Bear's Den joining the daylodge in the
not this year bucket, but suggested that the replacement lifts were likely although
not yet a certainty. It would seem that Charlie's pockets may not be quite as
deep as they were at first.
