Concessions will be on sale, and all proceeds go toward more Gem events. We hope to see everyone there!

We also have a challenge for the kids! Create your own car! Take a cardboard box and make it your own car. Shape it or just decorate it, we want to see your creations! There will be one winner who gets free popcorn and a goody! Then you can watch the movie in your own car. Just like a good old drive-in movie with the big screen and all. Judging for the car creations will be around 6:30 p.m., so be early with your car!

The annual Valentines fundraiser our ski hill was a huge success! We are humbled by the support from the business community for donations, volunteers for hours of whistling while they work and thrilled by our silent auction bidders ; $4,000 raised to help with summer projects!!

The Renner’s are always coming up with fun for the kids; this year was snow sled bowling.

Great snow blessed us over the 3 day weekend and Monday a special visit from an ‘ol friend -John Elsbury - on his set ski. We welcomed John & Nancy-Jo back to the Bald Mtn neighbored with hugs and smiles. I’m guessing John’s set ski was a first for the Bald Mtn T Bar. After figuring out the darn attachment contraption John rode to the top with white knuckled ease.
