It is nice to see 'natural' snow coming down now, with more on the way from the looks of things.
-Utah snow doesn't compact like Sierra snow, so what falls now will be just a teeny bit of whatever is around in December - I really couldn't say how much a foot compacts to... but 5% snow is sure amazing to ski on!
-PCMR has been blowing snow whenever temps permit, obviously days are typically warmer than night, so the guns have been idle during the past few days but have been blasting all day today and will continue for as long as temps permit.
-I know sometimes humidity can affect snowmaking, but again, as long as conditions are appropriate snow will be made.
-As soon as there's enough snow for the America's Opening races, which are in just over 3 weeks, they'll start in on Payday.
-No night skiing until Xmas.
