    Skied under the guns on og this morning. Top 75% or so is using the hkd towers. Beautiful dry silky smooth snow coming out. Awesome to ski. Tons of fun. Then on the bottom of og they are using the snologic ground guns. The difference is night and day. The snologics are putting out a wet sticky snow. And temps were single digits this morning...

    They don't have them set correctly then. Snowlogics can and do put out a nice dry product on the correct step and flow.

    The Logics have a constant air flow of 8cfm and 4-6 stages. As the temperatures fall you increase the stages and increase the GPM. In the am they were running at the top stage. At the temps came up a bit and the sun hit them, the stage was reduced. You probably hit those guns before they were reduced. While I did not ski it myself today, I had several people stop and tell me how nice it was. We are turning off now because the temps will rise overnight, but it should be an nice ungroomed ski in the morning. If we get the winch cat repaired in time ( a seal failed) we will winch out Stein's tonight. This is a two shift effort. That means we will free groom Ripcord rather than winching it and also leave Sunrise ungroomed, but the sun should hit and soften it up. Winds could be tough tomorrow. They are forecasting 35-50 at the summit from the SW. A bit better than last Saturday's WSW but still a potential morning of some windholds.

    I am not sure what this week brought but I found conditions better than expected last weekend. The snow making trails were in great shape. Besides a few wind holds Saturday it was a great weekend!

    I agree. Skied North, and didn't find wind holds to be any problem.

    Trying to decide whether I should venture out tomorrow or wait until Monday. I have a quad pack and I dont know if I will survive any more than 5 days max so I gotta be a little picky

    Today was surprisingly good. Especially North. We even skied Back Diamond and top of Bravo and exterminator. Wind blown snow filed in the cracks.
