When Is Opening Day? Our GM Speaks!


When Is Opening Day?  Our GM Speaks!>

Welcome to our new Snow Valley website and my blog.  The big question our Guests and Team Members are asking is “When is Opening Day?”  Believe me, we all want to ski and snowboard as much as everyone else does and want to open as soon as we can offer a quality product for our Guests to enjoy.

The storm moved in with several inches of rain which is actually beneficial.  The ground is cool and moist and the 3-5 inches of snow that fell after the rain has started building our base of snow.  Humidity levels should start dropping as the clouds move out and we look forward to extremely cold temperatures over the weekend which will lead to fantastic snowmaking conditions.

Snowmaking is most productive with low humidity and low temperatures.  For example, when humidity is in the single digits as well as temperatures, we can easily make whale sized piles of snow around each snowmaking gun.

Keep in touch for frequent updates directly from me.

Think Snow!
