    Thanks- just rescued the Sugarblog from my Junk folder & see Win had mentioned that snowmaking pipes are also going in.

    So they reduced electricity usage by more than 40% since 2012. I did a search on Skimrv.com and the first mention of low energy guns was November 2006 so I shudder to think how much energy they needed back in 2005 before they improved the guns.

    Helps people realize how much it costs to put the white stuff down.

    Yes, was surprised that lift operations and snowmaking used 7 x the electricity of the resort itself (lodges, Clay Brook, etc.) ... 7 million kilowatt hours annually vs 1 million

    With all the chatter in other forums regarding Vail purchasing Peak resorts, I just wanted to thank Win for everything he's done for Sugarbush. Please don't ever give in to selling to one of the giant ski conglomerates-- Sugarbush is just fine as-is.
