Snowmaking - Done For The Season

The Snowmakers are done for the season, and it was a good snowmaking season. We got off to a pretty slow start back in October. For too long, the weather was warm and dry. Luckily, starting about October 22, the switch flipped, the temperatures dropped and the snow began to fall. Mother Nature was very generous with her natural snow. That early snowpack helped raise stream levels facilitating more snowmaking for us. That natural stuff let us stretch the man-made snow faster and farther than normal. In the end, we got every place  (that we can reasonably) covered with both the natural stuff and man made stuff. Thank you snowmakers.

Al, have you ever thought about coming back to High Noon after you have finished making snow on the rest of the mountain to build a base for a longer run at summer skiing?

I have to say that the only ones that don't pull their weight up there are goats in front of the kid's building. thanks!

Obviously, Anonymous at 9:39 AM, you haven't seen the kids climbing on those goats if you think that they "don't pull their weight"...

It seems me that snowmaking usually never goes past the end of December -- is there some regulations about this?
