First Lift-Accessed Runs of the Season

Written by Kendra Wilson Today, I made it up to Heavenly for my first day at a resort this season!  It was sunny but a little bit chilly.  A little more chilly for me because I forgot my helmet and couldn’t find any sort of beanie in my mess of a car.  But, I put my hair …
