    We're currently running snowmaking on 153 of 183 open acres.
    This new system is performing beautifuly.

    It should be better than the wet slop they blew this morning. Started too early before the temps dropped enough it seemed. It was better after noon. Also hopefully they don't groom with a steam roller like everything seemed to be north of the bluebird lift today.

    How will the Carinthia Base Lodge construction project affect parking capacity at Carinthia, and proximity of parking to Nitro Express lift? Both this year during construction, and next year after the new lodge opens? Thanks.

    @MountSnow ... any comment on this? Will you be building up extra depth over the course of the year and/or running the new system in springtime to extend the season from when you would typically close in previous years?

    The Freefall and Plummet Late Season would be Awesome You have Great setup with the Summit lodge and outdoor deck for burgers and Beers or water between runs

    Whenever Mount Snow gets to mid-April it's a win. They don't have a great late season setup if you want to stockpile snow on the North Face. They'd have to run either detachable lift on the frontside for access and one of the triples on the North Face. That's a lot of $$$.

    They had a good plan where they would knock down all the features and jumps on Carinthia and host late season skiing over there. That was smart.

    This year will see quite a bit of reduced parking over at Carinthia as that will still be a construction site. This summer we will be installing a parking deck with parking on the main level and then on a subterrainian level for approx 700 cars, which should be a massive improvement. As for proximity to Nitro, you'll be a little further, but it will be worth it to have that sweet new lodge.

    You nailed it. There's really no good way to ski the North Face late season as you have to run a lift on the front side as well. As for Carinthia, we do push all the jumps together in Inferno and then push them out on Memorial Day Weekend for Peace Pipe Jam (see it here )
