Despite the rumor mill, snowmaking is alive and well at A-Basin. We had several snow guns cranking overnight. For the last several days we have been focusing our efforts on getting Molly Hogan open and widening Lenawee Face and Dercum's Gulch. This weekend we will shift our energy to making snow on Sundance.
Our snowmaking is connected to streamflows. As we divert water for snowmaking, we leave a flow in the stream that keeps the fish and other stream life alive and well. Streamflows are lower this year than last, but we have still been able to be very productive with snowmaking. So, if you happen to hear some of those bad rumors, you can ignore them. While I wish we were making as much snow as we did last year, our snowmaking is doing just fine.
And Molly Hogan Chairlift and Trail will open Friday.
