    Killington has 4 water sources - and they are used in this priority order as it is less expensive to use water close to where you need it.

    In modern snowmaking with internal mix guns with selectable stages, both air and water are variables. The new guns are not quieter because they use less air, they are quieter because the orifices are...

    3800 GPM Lincoln, 2500 GPM Ellen.

    Not a lot of capacity for that much acreage. Wildcat has a similar situation.

    No - air is not their limiting factor, and never was, water is. ASC used rentals and Summit Ventures installed electric fixed air. ASC also required more air back then as SR7's, etc were the norm....

    No. The max a 2" hose can push is a little over 200 GPM and 180 to 200 is the design max for the TF10, their largest model. Most people use 1.5" hose, so down to around 150 GPM, and you need good...

    The tower guns are actually far easier to remove than fans. Two people can remove them from the bracket without any equipment and lower to a Ranger, etc to move around the hill.

    Not sure where the info came from that Outpost does not run as much recently. It wasn't even inspected in the latter ASC days and runs every weekend snow allows now.

    Not entirely true. Modern chairs can be ordered with 2 APU drives. The Secondary diesel is usually sized appropriately to power the lift at near design speed. While the second (the real emergency...

    A mountain of that size and infrastructure really by default rules out the "bare bones" model. This was why I was skeptical that the Friends of Saddleback really had a chance of success (if they...

    North Ridge is a Poma (and their subs) install, so hard to knock K for the install speed. That said, I don't consider the pace slow at all. It's nearly there and lets face it IF they happen to lose...

    No trails are being widened. These trails all originally had snowmaking on them, many not used in decades. The one (Bushwacker) they're installing new on is not being widened. I would not expect the...
