Lots of Snow

Today is our first “thaw out” day after another great snowmaking run.  We will use this valuable time to make minor repairs and catch our breath.  Temps fall below freezing again tonight and should allow us to crank back up around sunset. 

As of 8am this morning we have pumped approximately 24 million gallons of water through our snowguns over only 97 snowmaking hours.  Average gallons of water pumped per minute = 4,000.  The tank is working exactly as designed and has been emptied twice in the last 10 days.  Today’s brief warm up will allow us to start refilling it in anticipation of another great snowmaking run tonight.

All is good in our snowmaking world!

Opening day is still expected to be November 29, make plans to visit for some great skiing, riding and tubing!  

Take a look at these pictures taken this morning:
