New England Resorts Hope Snow Droit Subsides Soon
During the beginning of the 2009-2010 ski season hopes where high for early season skiing. Sunday River opened and Killington followed. After a month of on and off skiing these resorts where forced to give up on early season skiing in the North East.
To make snow on a large mountain can cost up tp $20.000K each day. Thats way you will never see resorts making snow after the season get going. Once the base is down the snow guns get turned off. Yes even if it looks like the season will end early. Making snow after Christmas is not a option as far as finances go.
We have been out and about over Thanksgiving 2009 and could not find even a patch of snow to ride on. Nothing to even hike too.
So as Skiers and Snowboarders wait to get the first run of the season in New England resorts are ready to turn the guns on. With a Noreaster hitting the area in the days after Thanksgiving resorts should be able catch up quickly. They have had time to optimaize the pump systems and will be more efficient than ever.
