“herc usually sees snowmaking in late jan/early feb, usually one of the last to open. they want to get a base made before going on a trail only for experts. hydrants are on zeus and they put hoses through the woods. sometimes when the winter is good they make snow on zeus too. with the incredible cold forecasted for the next week+ we actuslly may se snowmaking on both of them soon.
they have only one hydrant on olympian and its at the top of the headwall. on good snow years in the past, theyll make a huge whale and let the skiers spread it out. ”
