March 5th. According to Butterynuts Facebook these are new guns they're just testing. Still counts!

Magic, also March 5th. Not testing = true base building snowmaking! YES, MAGIC. Skied Saturday and it was awesome. If storm happens it will be all time.

Wildcat was blowing on Polecat on March 7. Guns are still out so they're probably going to try to put down enough base there to keep things going into April.

An historic note: In 2006, Bretton Woods was last to close in the east. They had scheduled a "Bode Miller Weekend" for the last weekend in April and when the temps did get low enough, they made snow ca. April 22.

I can confirm that a weird-looking yellow (fan?) gun was blowing at the base of Golden Express before lifts opened on Sunday morning, Match 9. The same type of gun next to Snowdon Quad at Mouse Trap at K sounded like its motor was running on Saturday.

I was there the April day at BW. Sunday River has the hoses Pulled out on White heat, Amex XTC and Rocking Chair. Guns still set up in the park too. I would expect another burst or two.

Glad to see mountains are still making snow but at this point it seems like more of a PR stunt for social media

the fan gun on mousetrap's motor has been running for 2 weeks now, but it is doing nothing, K is done making snow, not so beastly!
