    Tell us that you matched your 56 runs with 100K feet of vertical and some of us might be impressed! IMO, the quantity of runs is not significant. Vertical drop is what I was touting in the opening...

    Agreed. "Ski Tracks" is especially bad, clocking me at well over 100MPH once. (I assure you: The only place I'vev gone that fast is as a passenger on an airplane). Trace Snow is much better.

    You are right if they were consistently skiing at that speed and/or passing close to other skiers at that speed. The Trace Snow app records peak speed. Average speed is much lower.

    I can assure you that there are some skiers who are out-of-control at 20MPH and that these guys were totally safe at the speeds at which they were going.

    If you're serious about using "Trace Snow", you've got to be carrying a battery pack. On a cold day, my phone will go dead in 2 hours without a battery pack backup powewr source.

    Given the multiple delays and that each PR release offering less and less options for this season, this posting doesn't pass "the smell test".

    It's getting harder to state things based on logic! IMO, they need a lot of snow at the top of both Velocity and Super Nova. However, that's on a separate zone and logic would suggest that those...

    You've got to admit: Pulling the guns off the hill would give most sane people reason to believe snowmaking is done for the season, (even if it wasn't the 2nd weekend in March!)

    All I know is that it is 30 degrees with 40% humidity. We should hit wet bulb (27-40) by 7PM and there should be a 12 hour window. If i think of it, I'll put up a posting when the snowguns start up.

    Feb. 25, 2017 - Sat.
    Given the weather + the forecast, be aware that CM will be closing at 5PM today.

    BTW, the season is by no means over and the current plan is to make snow on Sunday night.

    Agree. Historically, we get a good amount of snow in March. I'm thankful for the deep base that mountain management/snowmakers have put down to allow us to get through this misery.
