    that's a good one! You got me laughing there.

    So I guess your main competition in that scenario is Toggenburg and the Four Seasons? Are you saying he makes more snow than both Toggenburg and the Four Seasons? Well, you just may be right about that. But seriously, is that really the benchmark you want to be measured by? Just saying......


    When he stops running his air and water guns with only the water hooked up, I just might start thinking that he's getting over his cheap ass ways. Until then, I will still think he's a cheap bastard.

    Not technically summer...but apparently MRG just obtained a couple more fan guns (bringing their arsenal up to 5...a 40% increase)

    They still only have enough water to effectively run 3.

    I was wondering about that...but just reporting what MRG reported.

    I'm curious who MRG bought those off of???? The video on their FB page today of them unloading what looked like a couple of sled mounted SMI Polecat kid's off of the flatbed trailer sure didn't look like a brand new from the factory in Michigan, SMI delivery....

    There's no way those are PoleKittens. I'm 98% sure the nearer one is a Super Polecat (based on the number of nozzles and the compressor) and the farther one probably is too.

    If MRG has 200 GPM, instead of max flow around 15 WB it's probably closer to 20 wb, with a 60% boost in startup flow.

    But that's not all. We also were busy doing:

    $30 million in snowmaking upgrades while building the most powerful snowmaking system in the Northeast.

    Increasing water storage 6x thanks to our new snowmaking “pond” West Lake.

    Increasing in pumping capacity 2x for snowmaking, allowing us to open more trails faster than ever before.

    Purchased 220 brand new snowguns from HKD, all featuring low-e technology, which brough our fleet of 948 guns to 100% low-e technology, allowing us to make more snow while using less power.

    Purchased three new snowcats from PistenBully.

    Invested $22 million in building our new 42,000 sq/ft lodge at the Carinthia Base Area, which will open for the 2018/19 season.

    Invested and completed 100 other capital improvements this summer to our facilities on and off the mountain to make for a better guest experience.

    It's been a busy summer, but now it's time to ski.
