We have had a phenomenal first day of snowmaking. The snowmakers fired up the system and ran at full capacity for most of the evening. The temps stayed cool enough to keep going through the day. The evening forecast for tonight looks very good. In fact, the forecast for several days looks very good. Whenever we can make snow through the day, we are happy.
If everything went perfectly, cold temps and plenty of water, we can get the mountain open in less than a week. Typically, it does not go perfectly. We mix in some warm, non-snowmaking weather and it takes a little longer. We will see how it plays out the next week or two.
