Morry, also looks like Mount Snow is stepping up huge with snowmaking.
"Mount Snow invested heavily in snowmaking technology in the Summer of 2007, purchasing 101 energy-efficient Polecat fan guns from SMI Snowmakers, Inc. This state-of-the-art snowmaking equipment uses less compressed air than traditional air/water guns, meaning it requires significantly less energy to produce snow. Fan guns are ideal for producing a vast quantity of snow, even in milder temperature ranges. This means our skiers and snowboarders can expect:
- Earlier opening and closing dates with more terrain
- Fast recovery from extreme temperature fluctuations"

So while all the other Northeastern Resorts are dumping money into snowmaking and highlight and hyping early opening dates and longer operating seasons, Killington is throwing in the tower and conceding to a much shorter season than their competition.
So does anyone actually know what POWDR is actually trying to do with Killington? It sure deosn't seem like they are trying to grow and make it into a better resort.
