Sundance Snowmaking

You may have noticed these four poles on Lower Sundance. Last season we had a successful experiment with stick guns. This season we bought a few more of them and will be deploying them around the mountain. The stick guns sit on these poles. When snowmaking is finished the stick guns and the poles will be removed and you won't see any snowmaking equipment.

We are putting a lot of energy and thought into making our snowmaking system more efficient. When I say more efficient, I mostly mean we are trying to get more trails open for you sooner.

Fantastic! Sundance is such an important run for training. Glad to see the investment.

What's the large excavator digging up down in the base area ?

Just wondering, Al, if you will be removing the mounting poles for the stick guns when done making snow, why not just sled mount them to make them more mobile? A few resorts I frequent here in the midwest use the sled approach and it seems to work well.
