Major Improvements for 18-19

The snowmaking news is huge- we are adding 312 new guns and increasing our water pumping capacity by 2,000 gallons per minute!  A new pump house, new pipe, and the best automation technologies in the industry mean tons more snow for you to have fun on this season.  We've also added two more grooming tractors to the fleet, paved the entrance and walkways in the Base Area, and are busy with a two-level expansion to the Base Lodge that will double the size of the Tannery Pub.  Click to read about a noteworthy trail improvement on Lower Cloud too.
