Powder Ridge Returns
After a long hiatus, Powder Ridge has reopened. A large crowd watched as new owner, Sean Hayes switched on the lights, bringing the storied hill back to life. Notable was the fact that this wasn't just a local event. Many came from afar to celebrate the opening of the hill. There was a clear sense of nostalgia that emanated from the crowd. Many who learned how to ski at Powder Ridge or worked at the mountain in their youth, brought their children and families. The facility promises to be more than a ski mountain in the future by offering a high end restaurant and wedding facility. The cars came in on by one reminding many of the movie, "Field Of Dreams", a story about a man who builds a baseball field in the middle of a corn field that becomes a huge local attraction. Many in surrounding towns hope to see this as an economic boost by creating job and business opportunities. Bonfires were lit and people watched at snow guns discharged plumes of falling snow. There was a clear sense of excitement in the cold November night, as many enjoyed live music and food prepared by renown chef, Kevin Kottle. With hopes set high for Middlefield's great hill, there's little doubt that all eyes will be on Middlefield for some time to come.
