Snowmaking:  Temps bounce around over the next 5 days with some overnight snowmaking opportunities.  Weather conditions are expected to change dramatically at the end of the week as cold air returns and brings with it the opportunity to make a lot of snow.  With Highlands open, our focus shifts a little bit.  Finishing up Tyro, Lower Diamond, and the lower section of our Terrain Park become the next priority.  At the same time, we will use a portion of our snowmaking capacity to beef up open terrain and begin work on Upper Turkey and Devils Elbow.
