Sounds like people who like Exhibition at Whitetail may get to ski on it earlier than past years. In addition to getting new rental inventory and paving Lot 1, Whitetail continues to add snow guns.
From SkiPA for 2015-16:
This year’s snowmaking improvements include 17 new fully automated Techno Alpin Fan Guns. The majority of these guns will be placed on the Exhibition Trail. Our new fan guns will allow us to open the Exhibition Trail sooner and to resurface the moguls on the trail during the season as we see fit and as weather conditions dictate. Our experienced skiers and riders will truly love this new capability which we will be adding to our arsenal of snowmaking tools. We are also in the process of automating the Fan Guns on Drop In which will assist us with resurfacing the snow on this trail as well. Other Snow Guns being added to the mountain are some additional HKD guns on the Snowpark Trail. Both the TechnoAlpin and the HKD Snow Guns are very energy efficient helping us in our “green” objectives to consume less electrical energy as we make snow.
