Village Activity

Nice to have so many cabin owners spending time on the mountain. It took me two hours to get home tonight from the time I got back to the village. Great to see V & S on the mountain this week. "Welcome Home", Roger and Lisa.

Oh, and the "witch" is coming soon..............

Terry's Garden

Kevin and Terry have done an amazing job on their home and their yard. Every time I go by, there is another little touch - photos from the garden tonight.

Campfire Ban

Effective noon today - campfire ban in effect for the South East Fire Centre. No campfires at Baldy.

There was a small fire yesterday near Canyon Road , not far from the Canyon Bridge. There was a quick response and I couldn't find any smoke there this morning.

Many cabins were occupied over the long weekend - come on up - much cooler than the valley.

Nothing New This Week

The strata council has sent out a mailing to cabin owners*, and  home page has links to the company retained to sell the ski area.

When there is money to work with, work underway, and confirmation for the upcoming season, I will be happy to post things for you. In the meantime, I dread little bits of news - I do not appreciate reporters and camera men showing up at my door unannounced.

*Reminder that if you don't want to wait for mail from strata - there is a consent form to sign, and they will send your stuff by e-mail.

Article in the Oliver Chronicle this week:

Checking on George

George Webster has moved from McKinney Place to Sunnybank in Oliver - on Park Drive on the way to Inkameep Canyon Golf Course in Oliver. He is doing well, gets out for drives and trips home with the family, and has been up to Baldy a couple of times too. He now has a private room and his own phone, so it is easier to visit with him. If you would like his phone number, call Susan, or e-mail me.

Ethel is fine!

Ethel is doing well at the care facility in Kaslo, and at age 91 she went for her second boat ride of the season on Kootenay Lake on Saturday. If you are going through Kaslo this summer, she likes visitors - follow the directional signs to the Medical Clinic - she is just up the hill in the same complex.

Thursday, July 24, 2014 has an update!

If you haven't already seen it, there is an update on the home page of the ski baldy website.
