It is Wednesday afternoon. In my effort to post more regularly this season, I have assigned myself Wednesdays. We DID pick up a trace of actual snow last night. I know, a trace does not a storm make, but at least frozen water fell out of the sky. What has/will help with our snowmaking efforts is the much colder air which moved over the Intermountain West last night. At this moment I am at our Summit Patrol computer at 9300ft and it's 12 degrees. This time yesterday it was 30 up here and the day before 40. Outside the window the "industrial snow" from the snowmaking guns is "falling" hard. In other words, it's dumping from the hoses.
It's supposed to stay cold the next couple days and things are looking good for opening at least part of the Bonanza Zone by the weekend. It will be nice to be working from our Summit "office," I think we're all getting tired of life in Payday Patrol.
Originally from the Pocono’s of Pennsylvania, Travis found his way to Park City three years ago and is now our grooming manager. When not in snowcat you can find him skiing or snowmobiling in the Utah backcountry or enjoying the skiing here at Park City Mountain Resort.
