Google Earth Terrain Fly Through

I included in my last email to returning skiers a link to a Google Earth file of Wildhorse Catskiing terrain. It seems to be pretty popular and it does give you a pretty instant feel for all of the terrain available as well as some great memories. Now if the pictures were in winter that would be sweeter. Click on the link here and open the file and it should open Google Earth if installed and run you through a tour. Enjoy. The picture here is a sample and is of Wildhorse Peak.

Transport from Ymir

The last couple of winter's we have used snowmobiles to transport skiers from Ymir to our snowcat up in the mountains. This winter we are moving to these fine looking vehicles. They will be outfitted with bench seating and we will cruise along the snowy country roads. It takes us about 30 minutes to go from breakfast at the Ymir Palace to loading skis on the snowcat 20 km away.
