    I don't see any in Aurora from the Skiesta cam, but upper T2 looks to have some whiteness to it while nothing else does.

    SR's website is showing they are making snow on T2 trying to get open whenever they can. For the first time this year, I am feeling like ski season is nearly on us, with the weather being nice out!

    Skiing for 2017-2018 - TBD:

    More marketing fluff - they know it's going to be gone in days.

    Probably, but even if they just retain a few patches here and there til the next cold snap, it can help with that next effort. They need a strong showing this fall anyway so it is likely money well spent. And not just for public skiing, for their ski camp business from teams as well after last year.

    Publicity for sure. Really nice to see them blowing. Hopefully the next cold snap is extended though so 1) they don't have to throw more money at melting snow and 2) we get to SKI.

    I hope they make that picture of the snowmaking into a poster though. Absolutely beautiful.

    Heres what SR says:Cue the Snowguns

    In the early morning of October 17, temps dipped well into the 20's and that was our cue from Mother Nature. Snowmakers blasted the snowguns on T2 until just after sunrise. This wasn't a test (like on September 29). This was the real deal. Despite the warmup we see at the end of the week, we turned on the guns because we promised to make snow at any chance we can. And that's exactly what we're going to do.

    Wow, those leaves are impressive. Haven't even changed here in Southern NY. I think they're gonna fall of the trees green, or brown.

    I'm honestly surprised by the amount of color. I saw a sad picture of a brown Franconia Notch the other day, so I thought we weren't seeing colors like that this fall.

    I also love the look of white snow against beautiful foliage. I hope to ski in it soon!
