Yup...had some of the best powder days ever there. Was really sad to hear that Grandpa Grunt died last year. We would roll in at like 4 in the morning and he'd be up watching TV with a pungent aroma in the air.

I miss Ted... I'm a regular at the lodge and ride with his son, Brad. Brad has done a KILLER job renovating the first floor and keeping everything going... it's been tough but his strong spirit, like his dad's, has persevered. Def check out the new digs! Unfort no takers so the pow will have to wait another week... Morgan Patterson

Well since some of you are familiar with the digs I'll post up a few historical photos of photos I was able to capture when I was up for the funeral.

This was the building which was a construction office which was later turned into Granny Grunt's and then later Grampa Grunts.

This is the lodge under construction... must have been wild to be around during these times.
