Snowmaking is Back!

Update - 11:24am

Snowmaking is underway!  Looks like Mother Nature is coming to the table a bit early today and we are most thankful.  This early start will allow our Snowmaking Team more time to crank out the snow.  Check out the few pics below that we got right away or view our web cams.

Happy Hump Day and another day closer to an awesome weekend!  Rains ended yesterday afternoon and temperatures fell very slowly through the night. We picked up an inch of snow but no snowmaking opportunity as yet -- simply not cold enough with the high humidity.  As of 7:00am, we have 26° and 89% humidity – a poor wet blub of 25--Booo!  Alas, we expect a slight warm up today with temperatures and humidity falling late this afternoon into the evening. Hourly wet bulb prediction this morning shows nothing promising until around 3:00pm. Snowmaking crew has been on standby round-the-clock and as soon as conditions allow we will fire up snowmaking system.  

Skiers and riders can rest assured that the mountain has good cover and grooming crew has kept slopes in good shape.
