    Guess you’ve never seen real snowmaking and real

    Not a bad effort at all for not even a 24hr run.

    Same thing on Lodge. Made some piles with the HKD's in less than 24hrs. And in the case of a section of Lodge in just over 15 hours from when the pulled the bubbles off the haul rope yesterday afternoon about 4, and then had them shutdown about 8AM.

    Just wondering if you have actually seen the system in the last 2 seasons since the upgrade, or if you are just going on your past level of perception and feelings about the now former ownership?

    As someone who's been on the trails of Mount Snow the last 3 weekends and have seen the snowmaking effort and product firsthand, I have been quite happy with what has been put on the hill this season thus far.

    About the only thing I have seen firsthand (and I don't base this critique on what may or may not be on the snowreport or a trip report I read from someone else) that I would question is that this morning, once they shutdown on the main and Northface, they didn't fire up on new terrain ahead of the storm to work on putting some base down.

    The system is designed for maximum efficiency, and thus far they have tended to try and exploit that by running it often in more ideal conditions than marginal conditions when it comes to expansion after the initial opening push and mid season base building efforts. If you want to rant about using production data to influence when to turn the system on or not based on maximizing the number of acre feet produced while minimizing operating costs, then I would agree with you to some extent

    Being sour with management is one thing, it is hard to discredit the amount of water that Mount Snow can convert per acre. I should actually say impossible, not hard.

    Jeff I'm sure they're giving the crews a day off. Most mountains fired up Thanksgiving all the way into Sunday so its been a good run. When storms come, often comes the humidity. Not worth the hassle to run in most of the time. Tomorrow afternoon good WB returns.

    They were embarrassingly understaffed/unprepared for today. Lots not plowed, no semblance of lifeline management. EuroFunnel and no singles lines so chairs were going up with twos and threes. Fantastic day, but it was a running joke on every chair what a shitshow today was.

    If they get another foot tonight should be a full refresh. Whats the best trail to hit at opening untouched, Jaws?
