    Also, the brunch was the icing on the cake. Or maybe the giant cinnamon roll.

    I think that's the intent, though crossing the base area might be a bit of a hike.

    And I'm just spitballing from a very long way away. Mostly I follow this thread because of that same openness.

    Klik doesn't yet rotate low energy guns, just fans. It does start, adjust and stop low energy guns with almost no delay.

    A fan gun is much easier to balance than a low energy gun. The main tube on...

    Turning towers/dragging sleds is a crew problem, not the gun's fault. We have tower mounted big air and I see the same problem. As for refreshes, if there isn't a base deficit I'd usually rather see...

    I'm not totally familiar with the backend but I'm assuming like most resorts the limit at marginal temperatures is compressed air, not water. This changes as the wetbulb drops. New low energy guns...

    Once that snow gets skied and tilled, it goes quick. But I'd sure be willing to help ski it away.

    If I remember right, Sidewinder had just opened but not as a park - that was a treat. Plus the powder just kept coming down all day long.
