Btw, real happy for Snowbowl getting to finally motherfucking make snow this year. Now if they could just get the go ahead to put in a high speed lift to the top... Damn college protesters...
Ya its about damn time, and I think you mean Indian protesters. 10 years of bullshit over "dirty water" even though this same water has been used to irrigate a lot of their other land for YEARS.

Apparently they STILL havent finished the snowmaking construction or else they could have opened after that 1st storm we had.

The high speed lifts will be a HUGE upgrade and hopefully they can get one to the top of the bowl so we dont have to hike to it.

Big thing about the snowmaking is they will finally be able to have a good jump line all season...their park crew is better than sunrise but they haven't had the conditions to keep it steady most years. Supposedly they are getting a half pipe at some point too but I dk where they think they will put it....

Pretty cool too that ALL their rentals this year will be Never Summers.


Although even with all the upgrades I think Sunrise will still be the place to be.
