Belleayre, Hunter & Windham reporting that they've resumed snow making (Platty probably doing the same), with night temps forecast to stay cold enough til the weekend. Plus, snow tonight into tomorrow.
Five nights of this will put them in good shape.
This is where Cannons woefull snowmaking capacity is really showing itself.They need to go back and recover most major routes which take them forever,nevermind trying to get to the other half of trails they have yet to cover.In typical Cannon fashion,the second holiday event of the year will be a real shitshow to scare away the masses for the rest of the season.Selfishly for me,I like that but no,its not a good thing.
I'l tell you one thing..as bad as these thaw freezes go, they aren't anything like what can happen to places like Alta where grooming is subjective at best..the worst..and I mean worst conditions I ever attempted to ski on was last year in April at Alta after 3 warm days then a super hard freeze...thank god it absolutely puked that day and buried a lot of it but going off the beaten path was unreal..one guy even broke his leg...Squaw Valley was no peach either...but far better grooming...
