We've been very lucky this year with the weather for ESAs--plenty of powder for the Stowe ESA in mid December; freshies at ESA Aspen; and now a lovely wintry forecast for Big Sky and excellent coverage so we can ski the whole 5,000 acres of awesome, empty terrain.
I'm looking forward to the smaller ESA we'll have at Big Sky with only 20 students. Since we're all staying at the mountain it'll have more of a camp feel. One of the great things about staying at the Huntley is the skier's breakfast that comes with the lodging package--the food is great and we'll get to fraternize in our sweats and jammies.
Also, everyone will win something in the raffle--though some prizes will be better than others (like the K2 skis) of course.
