After nearly 130 hours of snowmaking last week, the crew was forced to shut down on Sunday afternoon as 30+ temps returned. There are a lot of big whales that are safe from the warmer temps (self insulating with minimal surface area). These will be pushed out late next week for our opening day on November 29. The forecast remains in the mid-30s for the next 10 days—so keep doing your snow dances.

As much as we would love to be open for our fans, we decided we won't open until Nov 29. This decision was made based on the 10-day forecast starting this Sunday, which is not favorable for snowmaking conditions through at least Nov 26.
For us to shut down snowmaking operations, move all our portable snow guns, and push out snow to open with a handful of runs would lose valuable snowmaking time. Simply put, it's in our best interest to focus on making as much snow as possible throughout the weekend.
Believe me, we are as excited for the season as anyone. But our primary goal is to have the slopes of Schuss 100% open as soon possible.

Summit Mountain is awaiting winter weather. You probably know by now, humidity coming off Lake Bellaire makes snowmaking more challenging (than at Schuss). Keep your fingers crossed and do your best snow dance for cold, dry air. We are all in Mother Nature's hands.View Trail Map
