Snowmaking Update

November 8, 2013 8:17am snowmakingwinteropeninghome

It's about to go down. Snowmaking is slated to start November 15th.

Don't know about you, but we're really excited for the 13/14 season to get started at Q Burke and that excitement is going to reach a whole new level once we start to fire up the snow guns. If Mother Nature cooperates, we're targeting November 15th to get going. We've been showing the love to our snowmaking system recently - last year we added more guns. This year? More power. Thanks to the recent approval of the interruptible service tariff by the Vermont Public Service Board in conjunction with the Lyndonville Electric Department, we've doubled our available power for snowmaking. We''ll spare you all the nuts and bolts details, but the bottom line is that more power + more guns = more snow. And we don't think we need to tell you that more snow is awesome.

Day 2 brought in some grease time and the crew got fully versed in fork operation, repair and maintenance-after some chalk talk on suspension theory, of course. We continued the day with brake design, operation, installation, fluid bleeds and maintenance.
