SLOPES OPEN SATURDAY

The 2016/2017 winter is off to an incredible start at the Peaks!  We've had great weather and have an even better forecast.  The snow machines have been running around the clock since midnight on Tuesday.  Mother Nature has even blessed us with over 12" of snow since Thursday morning.  

Slopes will be open from 10 am until 4:30 pm both Saturday & Sunday, with two chairlifts and seven trails open.  We will have several more trails open on natural snow.

SNOWMAKING FACTS

Somewhere around 28˚ F. is the “magic number” for snowmaking, depending on humidity and wind. It can be a little higher if it is dry out and lower if it is very humid. 

 

Ten inches of natural snow, when packed, usually adds only one inch of snow to the ski slope’s base while 10 inches of man-made snow adds seven inches of base. Man-made snow is more dense and durable.

 

For every 10-degree temperature drop, snowmakers can double the output of machine-made snow.

The lower the humidity, the better for making snow. If you add the temperature plus the humidity, that sum should equal less than 100 for favorable snowmaking weather.
