    It's absolutely relentless - in a good way. They seem to be out all day - every day. Im amazed at the whole process...

    When you compare it to similar projects in recent years it's really impressive. Look at Waterville and their new pod that has taken a couple summers and still needs a little bit of work. They started back in the summer of 2016 and I think the Green Peak Triple didn't actually run until January 2017 and even then there was no snowmaking and trails weren't "cleared" down to grass like these beautiful pastures Hunter is building. It wasn't until summer 2017 that WV got the trails cleared out and finished cutting and clearing the rest of them. Even this winter snowmaking was very limited. Meanwhile Hunter looks to have this terrain 100% open with snowmaking by opening day...

    Don't kid yourself, Waterville is STILL finishing clearing and grading the Green Peak trails this summer and adding in snowmaking lines.

    Agreed. Mega kudos to Peaks for being so efficient here. Its not complete yet, so I guess we can't quite count our chickens yet, but all signs are good thus far.

    Start counting your chickens, it will be done.

    Also keep in mind that the Waterville Valley expansion was done under their SUP and a Forestry Services permit. I am guessing, but pretty sure, that the environmental requirements for the Hunter expansion were a lot less than what Waterville is dealing with.
