Snowmaking opportunities over the next week or so will be limited to night. Whitetail can probably open Expedition with four or five solid days of snowmaking. With nighttime snowmaking, I'm not sure -- depends on how well it holds the snow during the day. But they've already started blowing snow there, so it might not be too long.
I'd like to head up to Whitetail Xmas weekend, but would prefer if this terrain were open. Regardless of natural snow, will Whitetail blow enough on these trails to open this section of the mountain in the next two weeks?
Glad to hear about the increase in snow making capability on Exhibition; wish they would add that to Bold Decision. Ungroomed Exhibition is the same level of difficulty as the blues off the high-speed. Opening Exhibition is adding more terrain, but it really isn't opening any advanced terrain.
Tonight, the surface was fast and crunchy, but nicely grip-able (sp?). Other than slickin' it up a bit, the rain we had earlier on Wed didn't seem to visibly hurt things too much.

PS - After the seemingly interminable hiatus, they were just starting to blow snow once again - Wooohooo!

Looks like there will be plenty of open terrain (with good conditions) for my first turns of the year this Sunday...
