Snowmaking in progress!

The title of this post says it all...SNOWMAKING HAS BEGUN!

After running a couple tests on our snowmaking system last week, we officially cranked the snow guns into high gear on Wednesday, November 27, as soon as the temperatures dropped low enough. Combined with an awesome natural snowfall Tuesday night, we are looking at possibly our best early snowmaking in years!

To good to be true? No way!

The last couple seasons may have been slow to start, but this season is looking better than ever! In fact, several ski areas are lucky enough to be opening this weekend and Brimacombe and the rest will not be far behind. 

While the physical location of each resort plays an important role in how much natural snow we receive and how much snow we are are able to make, we are happy to report that last night's snowmaking was more productive than expected! 

Translation? When we showed up this morning, there was waay more snow than we expected! All thanks to the cold temperatures overnight and our snowmakers' hard work!

The million dollar question...

"When will you open?" is by far the number one question we hear each day, followed by "What runs will you open first?" And while we don't have an answer to either question at this exact moment, we will have a much better idea by the end of the day today!

Stay tuned for an opening day announcement tonight at 7:00 p.m!

Until then, you can find a sampling of some of the great snowmaking shots we've taken over the past week.
