    Default Snowmaking

    Perisher had the guns on this morning when I looked at the cams at 5am. They are not running at the moment and the temps and pressure etc are all the same as then, not sure why.






    Falls had some guns on too, hope they can run them all day.

    Wind has dropped and it's now -3C at Perisher on front valley but no sign of the snow guns as yet. I would have though a good 24hr run would have been a big help, or are they going to wait til the warm weather later this week goes away?

    Wouldn't it be better to have something on the ground to try and cool it even if warmer weather is predicted?

    Making snow is very costly so if it all melts or gets rained away it's a big waste of money. I think the next week is a great opportunity to build some whales.
