Cold Temperatures have Arrived and Snowmaking has Begun!

Mother Nature has finally brought us the cold temperatures we have been anticipating! As some of you may still be recuperating from the extra baggage you put on from Thanksgiving Dinner, there is no time to rest now! As temperatures and conditions were looking favorable for making snow, the snowmaking department headed out and began to cover the slopes last night, December 1st. While conditions weren't quite cold enough for much accumulating snow last night, the forecast shows many more opportunities in the near future. At the current time no specific date has been set for opening day, but we will let everyone know as soon as we know!

Temperatures may not have dropped as low as we would have liked, however the first night of snowmaking was still a success! It was a perfect night for training and to warm up the guns from their long summer vacation and to make sure all the equipment was performing as it should. The snowmaking team did a wonderful job with the conditions they had and now can look forward to many more nights of snowmaking ahead of them.

As we look ahead, the forecast continues to look good for more snowmaking for the next few nights, so snowmaking will resume tonight as soon as temperatures allow. You can continue to watch our webcam and check our snow report for daily updates of snowmaking and conditions. Stay tuned and get your gear ready! The season will be here before you know it!
