Snowmaking begins at Loveland
24 Sep, 2008
My favorite early and late season mountain has now started snowmaking to get ready for another early season in Colorado. I love riding Loveland, seriously one of the best mountains for on-snow demo’s that I’ve ever been at and when the entire mountain is open (and it’s not a windy day), the snowboarding out of the gates is amazing on a powder day and the best part…is the lack of lift lines and people compared to other CO resorts.
Here’s to just a couple weeks before the mountains are open in Colorado!
Some words from Loveland’s myspace:
Our snowmaking crew from New Zealand arrived just the other day and we put them to work right away. Conditions were perfect for snowmaking last night so we fired up the guns and made snow for the first time this season. Check out some of the pictures taken this morning on our snowmaking status page. We will continue to make snow as often as possible although everything is still dependant on Mother Nature.
While we still have a few weeks before we open, we will concentrate on upholding our high coverage standard; a minimum 18 inch base, tree-to-tree, top to bottom. We will update our Snowmaking Status page frequently, so be sure to check it out our progress as it happens.
