Temps are cooling off, leaves are changing color and we have less and less daylight -- something wonderful is going on.
As of today we have 58 days until the official start of the 14/15 ski and ride season. In reality, we could beat this official opening day and open sooner. This reality has us scrambling to finish pipeline work, installation of new snow guns, get new rental equipment into inventory, install additional lighting in the Terrain Park, complete pump house upgrades and more. We have kicked into high gear recognizing snow making could begin before the end of November. This is the kind of pressure we like. Bring Winter on!
Plenty of seasonal forecasts are already predicting this winter as colder and snowier than normal. One of our more conservative forecasting companies updated their 30/60 day prediction yesterday, it is pasted below. NOTE - December is now a BEAUTIFUL shade of blue. Blue is good, really good! The January and February forecasts were already dark blue, having December turn blue is icing on top!
