Open terrain was rather limited, with three lifts turning to service the Lookout, Heidi's Hollow/Ski Schule, and Harley's Hollow trails. Coverage wasn't deep, but it was adequate as the base was more than quite firm - especially Harley's Hollow was icy in the middle, although softer stuff could be found at the edges. My evening was enhanced by meeting local telemarker Bill Devries on the chair, and spending most of my evening skiing with him. Had I not been skiing with Bill, I probably would not have discovered that Harley's Hollow was open. <BR> <BR>Here's a photo taken tonight showing the Welch base area and the Lookout trail: <BR> <BR><IMG SRC="http://www.firsttracksonline.com/discus2/messages/10/521.jpg" ALT="Welch Village, MN 12/12/99">
