    Actually, we're in the process of extending our license to the entire main base lodge, meaning that you'll be free to wander with your beverage.

    Was running with some extended (1 to 2 minutes) stops the 2 times I rode it this morning.. my oldest kid said they closed it for a little while mid day, but it was back running per my youngest mid afternoon.

    Definitely a holiday sized crowd in the main base area. Minimal lines elsewhere, even at Carinthia, when I was out from 8:30 until 11ish....

    The problem was a malfunction of the braking system. Thankfully though our Lift Maintenance crew were able to repair it fairly quickly. Overall the cold is not a friend to mechanical systems, this weather tests the ability of hydraulics and electronics to function properly. We apologize for the inconvenience, not what we wanted on a busy day.

    Overheard in our snowplan meeting:
    "This will be the biggest snowmaking resurface plan Mount Snow has ever seen in a 36-hour period, with 500 individual snowguns utilized."
