Agree, if they're doing a promo test they'll usually wait for the foliage to be popping a bit so the marketing department has some extra wow fcator in their social media upload to promote the upcoming seasonIf they are just blowing the mice out temp doesn’t matter.
What?A few years ago they‘d have multiple types of guns ready to go on north ridge: K3000s for the really marginal conditions, Ratnik stands when it dipped colder, and something else (I can’t remember) if it got real cold. Snow Logics maybe? Tending to lean far heavier on the K3000s now. I suspect (but have no first hand knowledge) that it’s a training issue: fewer experienced snow makers. Teach them one gun.
I still think Killington should add Chillers at the bottom of the mountain. This would all but assure something...
Most skiers don't realize how dangerous working with High Pressure water / air hoses is. In the cold it's worse. Much, much worse.
Two seasons in the 1990s featured Oct. 1 skiing. Given climate change, I don't expect that this year (or anytime soon), but I have expectations for October skiing.Agree, if they're doing a promo test they'll usually wait for the foliage to be popping a bit so the marketing department has some extra wow fcator in their social media upload to promote the upcoming season
