Looks like they did a more extended test in the basin last night.

I saw that this morning on my cam.  We’re getting close.

Forecast looks good for snowmaking starting around midweek, next few nights look on the warm side of marginal

I walked around the village (empty) and top of Ballhooter.  One of the guns they had parked there looked brand new.  I didn’t have my phone with me but was a fan type on wheels.

They must have added a drone to their marketing efforts.  (Which I think is a great idea) 

They posted this pic over the weekend.

I noticed a new (I think) yellow fan gun with red lettering earlier.  I think it was at the bottom of Ballhooter lift.

Yes, had a name I didn’t recognized.  Will try a pic this weekend unless BD82 can spot it on his cam.  It’s sitting over by the large trail map sign left of Ballhooter lift.

I tried to zoom in but it’s too fuzzy.  Maybe we’ll see it in action this weekend with lows in the 20s

I hope so, I’d love to see them get  a few trails open for Thanksgiving

A bunch of the fan guns on skidder were on this morning. They appeared to be at a pretty high angle though so I’m guessing temps are not optimal. I don’t see anything down at the boathouse on. I suspect by Sunday we will have a decent idea if thanksgiving skiing is an option

A resident there told me it snowed quit a bit yesterday but ground was too warm for accumalation.

It got down to 22 degrees tonight and they are currently making snow. Tonight should be cold too so they are definitely getting some snowmaking temps.

My balcony this morning - notice the rainbow over ballhooter.

These appear to be brand new.

Wind does not appear to be helping them, hopefully they can continue a decent amount into the day and run again tonight. Noticed that they have removed most of the 11/23 opening day references though

Negative.  Chris was at his place and stopped in mine.  I’m on drywall patrol in the basement LOL.
