The Wicked Winds From The East

Wow! The first month of snowmaking season has been a wild ride!  We’ve had a water drought, rain deluges, snow blizzards, record lows temps, record high temp, and winds from every direction. Take your compass and flick it with your finger and that is where the winds are blowing from, well today anyway. You know that old saying, if you don’t like the weather then wait a minute…..

For us, THE WORST direction for the wind to blow from is the east and that covers south east through north east which is half of the compass. An easterly wind makes it impossible to make snow from 86% of the hydrant locations due to the snow blowing back on the snow gun or in the woods.  Our pipelines are located on the west side of the trails by design because the NORMAL wind direction in the winter is from the northwest allowing the snow to cover the trails to the east of the pipeline.

Later today, we will be starting up snowmaking with dropping temperatures and a stiff northwest wind. (As I am writing this it is already 17 degrees wet bulb at the summit) I am sure you know and appreciate; the Snowmageddon Team minimizes the number of gun operating on open skiing terrain. We will be lighting up the snowmaking on the trails that are closed with nearly 60 guns. As soon as the Resort closes (today at 4pm), we will be starting another 70 guns to grab the cold temperatures and favorable winds to get down as much base as possible before the wicked winds of the east come our way tonight. Those winds will force us to back down snowmaking to one compressor running only 60 guns at 10 degrees. That is so frustrating, when we could be running triple that number! If the wind would only blow from the west!

Cursing the weather, which can be a full time job for a snowmaker, unfortunately does not get us anywhere.  For example, the current forecast for a storm due to hit Tuesday(ish) is a range from 2 inches of rain to 2 feet of snow. It does make me scratch my head though. Yes, I have my fingers crossed that it will be snow, of course.

The Snowmageddon crews are getting their gear on, pumps and compressors are ready, reservoirs are full. We are locked and loaded and going to fire when we see the whites of their eyes! Whichever direction the winds blow, we will be doing our best to lay down as much of that wonderful white stuff as fast as we can to cover and open as much terrain as possible. Because, after all, we are skiers and boarders too!
