i think its true their postponing
With our scheduled opening day now five days away and mountain conditions similar to our last update, we are unable to open on Saturday, November 22. We want to provide our guests with the experience that they have come to expect from a top-five rated mountain and at this time we are unable to do that.
Our snowmaking team has patiently waited for the temperatures to cooperate but unfortunately a high pressure has loomed over the Utah region for the past week. Last night the overnight low temperature at the top of PayDay was 50 degrees, with a low at the plaza level of 38 degrees. The 10-day forecast looks very similar to what we've seen this past week, but it takes just one storm cycle to get the mountain in excellent shape as was evident last season. Last year we had very similar conditions, where for the first two weeks of the season we had less than five runs open, however a storm hit on the 6th of December and we were able to open much more of the mountain. As we all know, last season was a near record snowfall.
Ultimately, we still need a total of 72 hours of ideal temperatures (average of 20 degrees or less) to provide optimal conditions on our lower mountain runs. This includes at least 24 hours to complete snowmaking on Homerun and at least 60 hours of ideal temperatures to complete PayDay and Treasure Hollow.
