“ Hey you! Don’t tell me there’s no hope at all, Together we stand, divided we fall” (PF ‘79)
And together we’ll get through this brief warmup and we’ll be back to winter in no time, in fact Wednesday night some snow should be heading our way. Starting back in late November we made snow at every opportunity, and it is holding up well through this period of mild weather…it skied great this morning, for sure. Snowmaking operations at the resort and Tubing Park will resume as temperatures permit later this week. Right now we’re running 6 lifts with good coverage. The Rail Park and Fiddler’s Elbow are already set up with features, and we’ll be cat seeding bumps on Morning Star, skiers’ right this Friday night. The Mountain Coaster will begin operations this Friday, December 19 and will be open through Sunday. We’re not opening the Tubing Park this weekend, but it will open soon.
Behind the scenes the snowmakers have worked on Sunrise, Catwalk and the Wall over in the East, and Upper Crystal, Tannenbaum and Independence in the West. We’ll see Sunrise opening next, then Tannenbaum followed by SnowPine. Right after Christmas the crew will be heading for Chute, followed by Eagle. Winter starts December 21st AND it’s a new moon, all good signs for snow ahead as well as several snowmaking opportunities.
One Holiday Valley bus will be running this weekend for lodging and parking lots plus the shuttle van. So let’s all get together out on the slopes and get ready for a great holiday ahead.
