don't use the snow making when they had the chance

Full review

Well after booking at WB due to history of good snow, it was a big let down when we got there in mid December and they had half a metre of the white stuff. This i can accept as it is largely natures call but what was really annoying was that they had temps around -30 degrees C but had very few of the snow making units running. With little snow, most resorts would have been busy making snow to maximise the base. But at WB, you got this feeling that they were expecting big dump so why should they go to the effort of making anything. sort of gives you the feeling the snow makers are there more for show.
