Snowmaking

OK.  Everybody is waiting.  Mark has most of the fan guns on the hill.  There is a bit of cleanup work from construction projects still on the Lower Mountain.  That should be taken care of soon.  Oh yeah, Rob still has to assemble the new conveyor lift.  Is it time for snowmaking?  Well, the forecast starts looking good Wednesday night.  A few degrees one way or another can be the difference between marginal and great snowmaking.  My money is on a few really good nights this week.  Stay tuned.  I image we will have some cool pictures very soon.  Think cold, real cold.

That is a wonderful blog post to wake up to.
Can's wait!!!!

I'm a pastor of two small Methodist churches in southeast Colorado, and I told my congregations back in July that I'll be gone whatever day A-Basin opens.

So please don't open on a Sunday or that is going to be really awkward for me.

Wednesday night is looking good for it; even better than that after.

How full is the snowmaking pond and the stream flow after the dry summer?

OK, that's enough to get me to stop procrastinating and get my new skis to the shop for mounting the bindings. Keeping my fingers crossed for an extended cold snap!

I'd have to think, at least after an above average September rainfall, that we'd be doing okay.

Interesting to see that Copper started making snow already.
