    Oh forgot to mention Carinthia looks fantastic, but far from done.

    They're gonna need to HAMMER the bottom of Canyon. It will melt-out completely by midway through this week and they'll be starting from scratch. Good news is plenty of snow up top if they want to push it down...

    I don't think I've been on such a WROD. I mean...the last 1/4 of that trail was 1-1.5 cat-tracks wide. Crazy. Really nice snow though. I will say between Freefall being slick and fast and Canyon being soft and sping-like...the variety of snow conditions was pretty cool.

    I guess when they farm snow in May the "runout" to the Superstar lift at the bottom of Supe is similar but that's flat and short. That's the only analogy I can think of.

    Most years the bottom of Bretton Woods first trail open is a cat track wide for a couple hundred yards, water bars not filled in and involves open grass/mud areas by the end of the day.

    I am getting a bit worried about this weekend looking at the forecast. Tonight and tomorrow night are the only times when they can blow snow before the rain later in the week.

    Having done BW Opening Day a few times back in 2014 Mount Snow had more than that mess, but not a whole lot more.

    What kind of cameras are you using at the mountain? Are the housings part of the camera or separate from the camera?
    Our Somerset Camera is a Prism Cam which is essentially a Canon DSLR camera inside of a heated housing. They work great except when we have snowguns pointed right at them!

Y'all have won just 1 in that time and the ten year mark is fast approaching on that while the future does not look bright for the franchise any time soon. Also, don't drink much if ever usually just for some apres festivities at the mountain so try again lol

    Now on to what people actually came here... Mt Snow was pretty great today given the weather. The snow was really good up top and ultra thin on the last half of Canyon. Not sure exactly how they could reopen next weekend without a pretty good long window to fill in Canyon and the very end of the run-out on Freefall. One interesting note, it looked like there was once a plan to open the Bluebird for this weekend based on my observations. Down at the base the guns were clearly focused on the barn area more than over at the Canyon Quad while up top the groomers had built a nice unloading ramp up and it was ready to go. The summit was done in the normal way to allow for a lot of traffic and options off the BB with the two routes to Cascade on either side of the terminal opened up with good depth.

    We covered the full base area in snow to be able to run the Grand Summit Express for downloading if needed.

    That leads me to asking What is up with the Bluebird then? I saw a few bubbles over near the shops on Sunday. Also do you see any chance at all to make some snow this week for Saturday/Sunday?

    https://youtu.be/_B7i2e62dxE put together a short video from Sunday if anyone is interested, with the new Hero7 Black GoPro. Freefall shows up about halfway through. Camera is great, video could be better the lens just kept getting so wet all day. I used the Quik app which sort of just edits the video for you which is nice if you just want something done fast.
