    I'm sure someone has the cost numbers. Likely varies a great deal depending on temperature and humidity. Wind is obviously a big factor as well.

    I'm not sure I've ever contemplated snowmaking being "excessive" at any ski Eastern ski area in terms of capacity as long as the amount they use that capacity allows the ski area to still be...

    I agree, the Sunnyside is the best terrain. But that would be a very short detachable. I haven't skied the new terrain, but it looks like a much longer lift ride than Sunnyside. Figure it would be...
