“We turned ’em on this morning. The wet bulb temperature dropped below 28 F. This isn’t a big snowmaking session, but it is a snowmaking session. Getting the system going is a small step, but a very important step. We like to test the gear and work out any kinks. These actions are important to help us be ready when the really cold temperatures come.

………….And everybody likes a little snow.” – Arapahoe Basin, today

Arapahoe Basin ski area in Colorado turned on their snow guns today for a test run after the temp dropped to 28ºF.

Arapahoe Basin is forecast to see a little bit of snow next week.

Fingers crossed.
