If you are a snowmaker there are two phrases you like to hear: “Turn Them On!” in the fall and “Turn Them Off” when you have made enough snow. After nearly 12 days of continous snowmaking during the coldest air of the winter to date, our World Class Snow Crew turned off the guns Monday morning. We are are able to do this because 100% of our snowmaking slopes are well covered with snow depths of up to 5 feet. Our Crew will now focus on pushing and grooming these huge piles of snow as we work toward opening Pintail Peak Wednesday morning!

Almost 2′ of new snow in the last week and great snowmaking weather means more open slopes today including the Tower Glades!  Snowmaking is almost complete on Pintail Peak and we plan to open there by Thursday.  Thanks to Mother Nature and the herculean efforts of our World Class Snowcrew we will be 100% open in just a few days!  YAHOO!
