    Whaleback closed until at least Saturday due to snow melt and warm temps. What a bummer.



    Was there two Fridays ago and had an absolute blast. Conditions were great, all things considered. Went back 4 days later and wow - what a difference. It felt like conditions on the last day or two before the close of the season. Brutal. Through no fault of Whaleback of course. They're doing the best they can.


    Wasn't sure whether to post this here or in the "who's open" thread!

    It hit 53 degrees around lunch time at the mountain today. Mud at the very top and nearly bare on the crossovers.

    Just can't catch a break this year...

    After getting absolutely wiped out last week and having to rebuild multiple trail sections from scratch, we are happy to be working towards re-opening tomorrow. This has been a very trying season - especially for the local hills like us. Hug a snowmaker!

    What kind of Larchmont's are those? They're my home mountain's bread & butter snow gun but I could never quite figure out which model they are. I know they're O-L-D and make a lot of snow!!!

    Hi there - they are actually Omichrons, not Larchmonts. Omichron is/was out of Londonderry, VT and used to be a pretty popular manufacturer. A few hills around still use them, but not many.

    We have a pretty eclectic assortment of equipment.

    Omichrons, K2000s, K3000s, HKD 1st Gen towers, Areco fans, Lenko fans.

    Always some loaner/demo equipment as well - this year a few 10' HKD Low-E Impulse sleds and a Lenko automatic fan gun.

    Hope this helps.

    Interesting... I always assumed it was a Larchmont because every other ground gun at my hill is a Larchmont.

    We also got one of those demo Lenko fan guns! Wow does that thing put out a lot of awesome snow!

    Great to see all the positive posts even through a bad situation like winter 2016! Can't wait to see what improvements the whale does next.
