Oct 5, 2013 – In the midst of heavy snow late yesterday afternoon, Vail’s snowmaking team was able to turn on the snow guns for the first time this season. Conditions have to be just right in order to make snow, with temperatures at least down to 30 but ideally under 20 degrees. The wet-bulb temp, or actual temperature relative to the humidity in the air, is also a major factor. Fortunately everything came together to blow snow throughout the night into the afternoon today. Snow will be made on Golden Peak throughout October and then expand to Front Side side runs in anticipation of our Opening Day, November 22nd.
