History in the making! Today we finished staging an 11 snow gun line from the base of Ptarmigan, all the way to Black Bear Chairlift! We’ve never had guns this high before! The water pumphouse and pipeline are pressure tested and ready to go; snowmaking staff is standing by!
Upper mountain conditions are pretty fun right now! We have a 33″ snowpack, 6.5″ of new snow in the last 48 hours, and a good looking forecast. However, the base snowpack is only 6″ with no new snow. Before we can open new terrain, we need a safe route all the way down.
The goal of this snowmaking lineup is to blow in the summer road from Williwaw runout down to Hooter so we can offer a home run trail! Fingers crossed for natural snow, cold temps, and low humidity!
