Kelly’s Blog: Elevation Baby

Snowmaking is in full force and on my hike this morning it was apparent that up until this point it has been all about elevation.  We have made some snow up top but the base has been marginal.  The good news is that from now until Thursday morningish we have great temps at the summit and base.  That means we are pedal to the metal, full throttle, turbo charged,  highly caffeinated, in a Green Mountain Coffee Double Black Diamond Extra Gold, kind of way.  Do you get what I am trying to explain?  It’s go time my skiing and riding fanatic friends!  Well, at least for 48 hours.  To depict the difference in elevation here are a few pics from my hike.

When will we open?  We are not sure yet but as soon as possible.  We will know a lot more tomorrow morning when we can see how much snow we were able to make overnight.  Stay tuned and get that gear ready!!
