Nothing against Jim i know that he dident know but i think that snowshoe people should get there facts right cuz thats not cool..... claimen something that dident happen
I think Snowshoe's point was that they weren't forced to close any trails this year due to warm spells, as has happened in the past. Snowshoe did periodically close a trail or two for aggressive snowmaking, but it was probably more of a convenience to skiers than anything. (Would you rather have snowguns going on all trails, or have them take one or two trails out every now and then to concentrate snowmaking on those trails?) People have complained about aggressive snowmaking in the past,so I think that's a better strategy. I hate skiing when snowmaking is going on. Also, Snowshoe was able to limit snowmaking almost entirely to night this year, after the lifts shut down.
I think the main point was that conditoins were consistently good throughout the season, that Snowshoe was never forced to close a trail due to lack of cover. That was true for many resorts this year, thanks to plenty of cold temps early on.
On Scott's statement about closing slopes, I am one of those who would rather see a trail closed down temporarily, than having the ignominy (as well as the lack of safety and consideration) of snow makers blowing snow onto people's faces.
The new snowmaking "policy" is consonant with the growing image of Snowshoe as an upscale place. In addition, I've seen better grooming and more Deer Valley-like "corduroy" conditions. The new Allegheny Springs Lodge will even have concierge services. I celebrate that. It is a large market base long waiting to be tapped.
