More Testing and Training

OK, it wasn't cold enough to make it stick, but we blew the pipes out a bit more today. We were testing and training with the new stick guns on Lower Ramrod. All systems are ready and waiting for that mercury to drop.

What were the snow making and opening day dates for the last big El NiƱo years of 97 & 99?

Here's hoping you can start making by the 19th and open on the 29th.

How long does it usually take to open after snow making starts?

It looks like more warm weather until 17th/18th. When it starts I hope there is a huge natural dumping as well!

Who cares. H2o is top 3 most valuable resource on earth so we can wait for temps to drop before wasting it on one run that is less enjoyable due to the cow-like conditions.

There was no snowmaking at A-Basin in 97 or 99. 99 was a La Nina year, so perhaps you meant 09.

Opening dates at Loveland:

10/17/97, 10/19/99, and 10/15/09

Record high temps for this time of year down in Denver, Hopefully soon we will make the turn into colder temperatures.
