Snowguns All Night

(viewed 830 times)
Bookmark and Share
Snow making efforts have continued all day. A haze looms over the
Giants Ridge Resort area, and drifts are begining to form. As of 11PM
CDT, Visibility is limited on Giants Ridge Road in varying degrees for
a couple miles in either direction from the resort, due to the
snowmaking cloud. For about one quarter mile either way from the
entrance to the resort parking lot, visibility is limited down to
about 20 feet.

Thanks, Euphro! ( I had a feeling it would be worth stopping by the resort to take these shots before heading home for the evening. )

It was pretty slushy in the afternoon, but by the time I took this picture the slush was frozen solid. I will try to get out there and check the progress in the next couple hours.

Thanks for the comments, everybody! And, thanks to whichever editor (E?) selected this as a highlight!

I'm glad you enjoyed them, Sharon! I didn't get the chance to stop at the resort this morning, but I will update in the next few hours.

To anonymous:
Definitely. Must shred! I'll be out there as soon as the groomers spread the artificial snow piles around, or when the pow falls, whichever comes first. Pray for powder!

I have been to Steamboat Springs, CO and Copper Mountain with my family and some friends many years ago. We flew into Denver and rode a bus across the state. It was a good vacation.
