    Snowmaking in March

    So what resorts will go for renewed snow making when the temps drop next week? Okemo has announced that they will. I would think K might, but they have shut down at the end of Feb in recent years. Sunday River stopped a while back, but are always a candidate to pick it up again. Who else?

    K definitely will at least on Superstar. They said as much in an e-mail they sent out today.

    I have seen Sunapee do it mid march. Cannon is done I think.

    Good news. It looks like they are committed to June turns. K hasn't made any significant March snow in years, and it is almost always needed to make it til June.

    Hoses still out on the fan gun trails (and a few select others) at Mount Snow - they indicated on their passholders forum that they're likely not done yet for the season - some snowmakers now working lift ops and other jobs as well, so they have crews available if they want to..... :Fangun:

    Last year we went to smugg over Vermont vacation week. They blew snow every night temps allowed. That was a different kinda year though.

    They blew snow a couple years back on SS and talked up June skiing but make it to the 28th of May.

    If Hunter / Peak wants to sell some early season passes for next year they have no choice. The last few weekends have been a disaster with 1/2 hr + lines at the 6 pack, and F broken down and the triple line up the hill. not to mention thee brown spots everywhere now.
    Long time passholders not too happy these days...............

    Sounds like par for the course with Peaks. I am shocked that even with the weather the natural cover is still intact in NH, even at Crotched. Base was deep to start.
