SIMA TAKING SHAPE – The snowmaking process ended this week at Mount Sima, about one week ahead of schedule. The Whitehorse ski hill remains on target for its planned opening date of Dec. 20. Pictured, Meagan Wilson stays warm in the BR 275 Snowcat while three fan guns located at the bottom of the steep pitch on ‘Dan’s Descent’ crystalize more than 100 gallons of water per minute. The hill could still benefit from Mother Nature’s help with more of the white stuff. Photo courtesy SAM OETTLI

As usual, I speak only for myself, and I don’t care what Sima, Sima’s friends, GNSS or the man in the moon does, as long as I don’t have to pay for it.

At the rate that taxes are going up..more and more people are focusing on what tax money is being spent on, where the priorities are and how much a person is willing to pay for. More and more letters are showing up in the papers trying to take a stand on handouts and financially wasteful practices.

Times were good for a lot of years for Sima, and other orgs and associations who got funding, but the good times are over, and a lot of us caught up in the squeeze. Its not that I don’t want to pay..it’s that I can’t keep paying..

@ Ski Bun no one cares that this is a new group. This so called new group still needed a hand out just to get open. So you tell me where is the difference? What has changed? Nothing has changed you’ll see the hand will be out.
