Sundance - 100% Natural Snow

6" more snow today. Wow. Sundance will be open with 100% natural snow. That is extraordinary for November 6. I am sure we will come back and make little snow on the trail later.

The snowmaking priority continues to be Lenawee Face and Dercum's Gulch. The natural snow has been incredibly helpful. There are steeper spots like the very top, Tower 16 Pitch and Tower 7 Pitch that provide challenges. These areas take some extra farming and extra snowmaking. The snowmakers had a good session working these zones last night. The forecast continues to be favorable.

Now our 31" base will settle out a bit, but we may be able to open some additional terrain. The first areas to open without snowmaking are typically Humbug, Lenawee Parks and Cornice West Wall. Who knows, Loafer might be in the mix before too long.

Really looking forward to getting to the top.
