    Sweet. Looks like its really bombing out. Heavy wet base snow - perfect to get the mtn open in a big way. Long term forecast has trended cooler too. Nice.

    6k GPM is pretty good capacity, more than I thought. What I always forget is that a good portion of that capacity is at ME where you have no plans (rightfully so) to open before mid December. ...

    I love the bush, but meanwhile down in the slightly warmer climate of Ludlow, Okemo (the snow kings) has 259 acres open with six lift pods. Jackson Gore opened today. That's damn impressive.

    So does that mean there are two ways down, downspout and domino chute/lower grinder? Seems to be the case, but from I have seen they aren't clear about it. $73 is steep for one or two runs.
