SNOWMAKING !!!!

OK, not really, but the crew did fire up the system. It is not cold enough to make snow. We took advantage of the cool morning to fully fire up the system. It was a combination of staff training and refreshing and looking for those last minute glitches. Although we have been doing lots of testing, that is not the same as turning the entire system on at once. This is the first time the reservoir, pumps, water lines, power lines and fan guns have all been on together since last December. We want to be sure nothing too weird has happened in that nine months of dormancy. This morning is the big test. I am sure we will do a few more big tests. The objective today is to be absolutely ready to go when the temps get below 28 F wet bulb for an extended time..

Snowmaking really just feeds into the instant gratification society

Nice to see the guns blowing water at the very least. Looks like a good test!

Check the chart. Still in the red zone. Waste of water, labor and electricity.
