9" and Snowmaking

This is good. We received 9" of new snow the last 24 hours. Beautiful, good stuff. Great for the Earth. Great for future snowmaking. Great for skiing this season. We made snow last night on the upper half of High Noon. It is still a little warm at the very bottom. At the coldest point in the evening we had 10 fan guns running. Right now, the upper 5 fan guns around Black Mountain Lodge are making snow.

The forecast shows a notable drop in temperature around dusk this evening. Let's keep our fingers crossed for a good, cold night.

I guess it took extreme pessimism before optimism would shine thru...
It really is darkest before dawn, or, something like that.
I don't even ski at this resort but I love the up to date commentary.
