These first efforts are focused on the upper mountain with planned expansion to the lower elevations as the weather cools down. This year the resort's two newest trails, Big Bang and Eclipse, saw the addition of new snowmaking pipe and tower guns. The area has also more than doubled their water storage capacity with a massive reservoir holding 155 million gallons of water. Skiers and riders can be assured of plenty of water to convert into packed powder for the coming season. ~ Joan Wallen
