    Totally depends on the trail, pitch, and existing conditions. For example, we're running every gun on Free Fall right now, but every other on Long John. We've also got every other on Ridge, except for one pitch where we're running every one.

    Currently, we're running 191 guns that are using around 50% of system capacity, or 5,000/11,800. The plan tonight is to have 250+ plus going.

    I know this is a Mount Snow thread, but lets not get too fapping crazy
    Yep. Started at the Summit and worked their way down as the temps dropped. The mid mountain cam now moves and shows more of the mountain.

    Just checked the Mt. Snow cams and seems they're blowing snow just about everywhere. Nice!

    I've never cared for mount snow. the terrain just bores me. but reading this thread, i must give credit where credit is due. a huge +1 for being so communicative with us here, and a huge +1 for this impressive snowmaking investment and utilization. way to go.

    Right, which is why I said 10K +.

    Geek question.

    Where does the 11,800 number come from?

    Manufacturer open flow number?
    Manufacturer number for given pressure?
    Does it take into account Mt Snow's pipe diameters?

    Because I'm guessing no one ever put a bucket under every gun and measured it.

    Are there flow meters anywhere in the system?

    Thanks!

    It's too bad that Peaks snowmaking efforts in New Hampshire have been a joke so far this year.
