Heavy snow...guess where?!

Hello again skiers, riders and Hunter fans! I looked out the window minutes ago, and to my amazement, heavy snow was coming down! I thought I should tell all of you. It's a bit difficult to take pictures in high enough quality to show how heavy it is snowing, so you'll just have to believe me...however, I do have a picture of the mountain today, and the scoop on trail openings!

This photo was taken by Steve early this morning...



Here's the skinny on what we're doing:
- we're setting out the guns on Hunter One and Belt Parkway tonight. Weather permitting, Hunter One will be open on Wednesday, and if temperatures stay cold, we will widen the cover on Hunter One and open lessons and childrens programs this weekend. This is absolutely not a 100% guarantee, but we are spreading out and covering as much as we can.
- The Belt may be open by Thursday, again, weather permitting.
- That said, ticket prices will start on Wednesday at $38 -- check back tomorrow for more prices. Each ticket price will come with the same $10 coupon we offered on Thanksgiving weekend...redeemable for $10 off a lift ticket at any time throughout the season.
- We also may be blowing on Minya Konka, and possibly others. Keep checking back for updates. Basically if the prices go up, it means there are more trails open.

I just took these about an hour ago...






We'll know more by tomorrow, so check back soon for updates!

I'm curious - I don't quite know how snow making machines work - how much area gets covered, over what time frame, and how deep?
