Just A Little Colder Please

The Good News. With these warm days, much of the snow on the south facing terrain above the ski area has melted. This has not impacted any of the snow where we have been working on terrain. The streamflow has bumped up and we now have a decent amount of water in our reservoir. In fact, we have enough water to make enough snow to get Ramrod open.

The Not Quite So Good News. The last couple of nights have been pretty warm. The last time we made snow was Sunday morning. This isn't weird or unusual. It is just typical October weather, some great nights for snowmaking and some not so great nights for snowmaking. So, we need the night time temperatures to drop about 5 more degrees and we will get this snowmaking operation cranking again.
