Well, it finally got here!! Our Valentine's Day/Ski Pawty Weekend! I am so excited!! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY EVERYONE!!
Off we go! Up to the ski resort. By the way, did I tell you that Mount Hairy Lodge was a remote, out of the way place? Are we there yet?
Oh boy, we are getting closer!! Are we there yet???
YIPPEE!!!! We finally made it. I must take my post by the Mount Hairy Lodge directory to welcome my guests and give them directions so that they can find their way around the resort.
AireRuby has landed, and the travelers have made their way up the mountain to the resort. Now that they are all here, they must wait in line to register, since they all arrived at once. Most will be staying in the upscale, five-paw hotel and casino. They look tired, but excited. Asta Marie, in the front center, can't wait to get to the casino. (Don't tell anybody, but I think she has a gambling problem.)
Back Row, left to right: Scruffy, Ruby Bleu, BabyStan, Joe Stains, Koobuss
Front Row, left to Right: Lacie, Lorenza, Asta Marie, Jackson, Butchy, Pacco, Luna
Once all of these guests are registered, the next group will be taken care of. Everyone has been very patient. Guests are enjoying visiting with each other while they wait. The lines move quickly at Mount Hairy Lodge and the waits are brief.
Some guests are enjoying the more cozy atmosphere offered by the bed and breakfast, which is across the street from the main hotel. Everything at Mount Hairy Lodge is conveniently located.
There is a line there, also. Waiting to register, from left to right are: Snickers and Gussie, Snowball, Asta, and Stanley.
There will be rooms available here, if anyone in the big hotel decides that they want more peace and quite, they will be able to request a room change to the smaller bed and breakfast. All facilities are top notch, so it really doesn't matter where you stay.
After everyone was registered, fed, and rested, guests made their way over to Mount Hairy Lodge's world class ski facilities at Wild Dog Mountain. I went ahead to greet everybody when they arrived. Several of my friends joined me and we formed a Welcoming Committee so that each guest received personal, individual attention. The committee is, left to right: Lacie, Luna, and Dewey, on the roof top; Amber-Mae, Stella (whispering something to me), me (Koobuss), Kousin Asta, Asta Marie, Toby, and Pacco.
Then we had to wait in line again. This time it was to get our lift tickets. Once we got them, we were set for the weekend. YEA!!!!!
In line waiting for lift tickets are, left to right: Scruffy, Me (I brought my bully stick to chew on while I wait. It is never too far away from me. I may be addicted to them.), Lorenza, Toby (on bench), Lenny, Amber Mae, Dewey Dewster and his mother Asta Marie, Sparky, (all on the bench), Noah, and Ellie (on the bench).
Because we are intelligent beings who appreciate the value of an education, we made the youngsters among us attend ski school until they were able to prove their competency on the slopes. Here they are waiting for their first lesson. From left to right are: Weeny and Daisy, on sled; Stella and Bob T. Bear, on sled; Pinot, Petra, Cassidy, BabyStan, and Toby.
Now we are all set for a busy afternoon and evening. Mount Hairy Lodge has night skiing, but there will not be any photos available. You'll just have to check out my kousin Asta's blog. And don't forget to come back tomorrow to see how we make out. HAPPY SKIING EVERYBODY!!!!! WEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
