    So what are the capital plans for the summer? I recall something about the top of Sleeper and snowmaking on road around the chute. Anything else?

    We are finalizing the capital plans now. Nothing very glamourous and visible but lots of items to keep everything functioning well on and of the mountain. Ripcord was repaired. Yes, we are adding snowmaking to Sleeper Road so we can groom it regularly and one can avoid Sleeper Chutes. We are also putting the power lines that run from the base area to Heaven's Gate underground. With the volatility of the weather and snowmaking on Lower Downspout exposed power lines are risky. Losing them would cut off power for snowmaking up there and the power to run HG and CR lifts. This is an example of something not very glamorous or visible but important and not inexpensive. One visible project which is already underway is a redo of the courtyard. We are putting cobblestone down in place of the cement, adding more outdoor seating and putting in two fire pits. It is going to look really nice for all seasons. We are also permitting some additional and necessary employee housing which is going to be a multi-year effort. If total we will be investing at least $3 million in improvements this summer.

    Wow, burying those power lines is a huge expense, that's all 3 phase.

    THAT is impressive! It was one of my biggest fears during snowmaking, hitting those lines, and making sure I trained everyone else to know where they were, what they do, the dangers of hitting them on a Saturday morning, etc. Luckily we only had to worry about them from HG down to CR cutoff, and again down by the maintenance shop.
