    Downloading will be mandatory and it will be done by the Grand Summit Express as per the trail report http://www.mountsnow.com/snow-report

    I for one am very happy that Mount Snow and Wildcat both opened up well ahead of schedule for some bonus October and early November skiing. I don't have a Peaks Pass this season, but your willingness to get things open as soon as you can is totally awesome, and I will keep it in mind when making pass decisions for next season (and even though I don't have a Peaks Pass, I'm sure I will ski for a few days between Wildcat and Mount Snow, probably mostly early and late season).

    I wasn't at Snow this past weekend, but the Wildcat parking lot was as full as I've ever seen it. They got a super crowd.

    At least for Sunday the same could not be said for Mount Snow. Course I've also been there in the busiest days off the year with 11,000 people so tough to compare. They had a really good group for such an early opening weekend, just not to the level that Wildcat had.

    Went out today for my second day this year and Snow's third. Wow it was a rough week for the mountain, the fact that they opened today proved to me that there are some serious diehard skiers/riders calling the shots because I seriously doubt many mountains would open with the amount of work that was required by the groomers. Canyon is totally gone, they'll be starting from scratch when they start snowmaking again. Up top it's clear they blew A TON of snow a couple weeks ago when they had the chance. Freefall was a true WROD for the bottom half, same for all of River Run. Cascade was alright, good for early season, but they pulled the plug on the park due to losing trail width with the melt out this week. Overall just a huge day to show what mtn ops can and will do to be one of 9 ski areas open in North America!

    What is up with running both Canyon and GSE? $$$

    I had the same thought when I was there, but I came up with two reasons, one Cascade was in rough shape near the top of Canyon Quad and getting over to the top station from that spot would not be the easiest of maneuvers with the crowding that was happening(there were WAY TOO MANY people with no business being out there today trying to learn to ski/board) so maybe played a role. More importantly though, think about the bottom of Canyon and how they load at a 90 degree angle. While not impossible to download with that config at the base, it doesn't make it very easy. Also GS was run at less than half speed for most of the day and they were doing pulse downloading grouping people ten chairs at a time so honestly probably was not using tons of power.

    Why not just use GSE for uploading and downloading? Agreed Canyon would have been tough to do both.

    Seems like this was a waste. Of money and snow. And more rain to come. Bye bye.

    Ehh I got two days out, they got good press out of it going into the ski shows, so not a waste. Looking ahead starting Saturday night they should be able to lay down a lot of snow and get a lot of terrain open.
