100%

Perfect morning.  The wet bulb temperature at mid-mountain is 14 F and dropping.  Our snowmaking system is operating at 100% of capacity right now.  Every fan gun is cranking out snow and the pumps are running at maximum capacity.  Great conditions.  I just visited with the snowmaking crew, Asa and Brendan, and they were in great spirits.  I think they have a lot more fun when it is cold and they are really making snow versus piddling around at 28 F trying to make snow.  Anyway, this is what we were hoping for.  Let's hope it stays cold all day.

They better beat Loveland. Abay only opens with about 600ft vertical, Loveland throws down with a 1000ft.

700 vertical

also worth noting even though loveland has longer vertical on opening day a large portion of the run is actually catwalk. A-Basin, on the other hand, opens a full run from top to bottom.

Does Abasin have a set date when it will open yet? Or still debating?
