Lenawee Parks Snow Work

The Ski Patrol has been busy working in Lenawee Parks, Norway, West Wall, 13 Cornices and Slalom Slope. On less steep slopes, we do much of our snow packing with snowcats. On steeper slopes, particular slopes steep enough to slide, we manually pack and impact the snow. That process may involve deploying explosives, ski cutting, boot packing and ski packing. As you can see, they have had a big impact in Lenawee Parks.

Nice job, Tony and all your crew! Pack it good so it's still there in May when I come out to see you!

Saw you out in the base area today! Keep the blog posts/updagtes coming! Great day to be out on the slopes - had an awesome Icelantic ski demo too! Felt good to stretch the legs out from the top. I'm looking forward to more time at the Basin this week - liking the forecast. Kudos to ALL the crews that make A Basin so great - both the snow/patrol, lift, and the food crews! The bison stew is killer at BML.

I thought you bought some sort of compaction contraption over the summer.

Why is there what looks like powder, yet it is barely skiied off?
