While we are just on the fringe of the Polar Vortex, and missing the snow the Mid West is getting, the temps are very cold for this time of year.  The snow making efforts up on the hill are going strong.  Here is a shot I took Sunday of the gun turning out the white stuff at the bottom of the Mid Gad chair. DSC02290The efforts are happening all over the hill and this cold weather is just the thing when you want to make a lot of snow with good quality.  I made snow at Nashoba Valley in Massachusetts all through college and when things got cold things got interesting.  The hill is going to open on Friday morning with Chickadee and Gad Zoom only, with perhaps Regulator later if conditions allow.  Off the main runs the cover is still very thin.  There is a chance for more snow this weekend, so we can cross our collective fingers to see if we can get a dump to kick things off.  The cold spell is going to be holding on for the next while, so be sure to dress for the cold and riding the chairs.  I will be putting on a couple of extra layers.  I have still not adjusted to this early cold.  Brrrrr.    Get ready.  See you on the hill.   Ciao!!
