    Hunter snow making?

    Is Hunter and Mount Snow done making snow for the season? For the past few weeks Hunter has not written anything about snow making in the daily snow report.

    Not sure about Hunter, but I know Mount Snow is planning on some resurfacing ahead of Pres week, and possibly during Pres week as well. I would presume that Hunter is likely thinking the same thing.

    As for Mount Snow, from having been on the hill yesterday, if they're not at their traditional core trail spring depths yet, they're quite close.

    The West Lake snowmaking project frankly has changed the traditional snowmaking schedule for Mount Snow, as between the water pumping upgrade and the changing of so many air/water gun technology, they've made more snow, quicker, all over the mountain, than frankly we as skiers and riders are used to. They don't need to push it now to inefficiently make snow unless it's purely westher dictated, so they're efficiently looking at weather windows, knowing that they can run over 500 guns in about a 36hr window to resurface as needed.

    For Hunter you might send a PM to DMC a/k/a ''Funky Catskills,'' who shows up here on AZ every so often. I believe he lives right in town & has inside info. He rides there often but unfortunately doesn't provide us with TRs. If you find out please follow up here- I'd be interested in knowing too. Looks like several nights this week will be cold enough to turn the guns on.
    If it's snowin' I'm goin'

    Cover at Hunter is way thin. I think they'll do a quick resurface to placate the crowds on Friday. Weather has not been cooperative this season at all.

    Haven't been to Hunter this season. Where are they in terms of that expansion (trails & lifts) below Belt Parkway?

    Asked some friends if they knew the snowmaking schedule...
    Town is quiet - everyone is dealing with the death of David Slutzky's wife Jean..

    I'll post when I hear something...
