|Greetings Ragged Mountain Friends. Here's a little sunshine (or shall we say snowshine) for you on this rainy day. On Monday, we will be announcing that we are spending an additional $1 million in snowmaking improvements to make your 2012-2013 winter the best ever! You'll see 100 more low-energy/high-efficiency tower snow guns on the mountain. Half of those guns will be part of the new, automated snowmaking system on the Exhibition trail. Last season we automated the Flying Yankee trail, which means our snowmakers can take advantage of shorter windows of colder temperatures, and get more high-quality snow on the hill earlier in the season. The additional tower guns will allow us to be ready to go on even more terrain, plus hit high-traffic areas on a more consistent basis. |
Combine all this firepower with a new pump that is going to push 25% more water on the hilll and five new fan guns. All this means we have the capacity to open more terrain even faster, letting you carve turns on Exhibition and Flying Yankee early .
