Everyone was friendly and helpful. The rentals were great, and we are seasoned skiers. Just driving through and lucky enough to catch the snow which was rain in town. Even hit some first tracks. Snow was perfect.

I'm not sure what your question is or was. I was just a customer so not sure about religious services (Masses) I can comment on Masses of people at lodge. There was not many people there that day.
