Peterson Butte opens tomorrow (Nov 1) and there is good south wind in the forecast. Some rain too... Who's going? Tomorrow is a holiday here, but I still can't make it; don't have the clothes for is anymore... ; )

Anybody know the state of the access road? Last time I heard it was pretty grim, needed work, possibly a culvert?
Pity Dieter hasn't got the right clothes . . . .

crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside... : )
Hi Pete, good for you to discover the Butte. Were there any hang-glider guys up there? We have been getting along great with them; Steve, Duane, Pete are the usual suspects there; please say hi for me when you seem them. And the owners too, the old folks in particular...
Looks like La Niņa may bring a good season to y'all...
