Not one minute later, @borealmtn tweeted:"Keep an eye on the Boreal web cam. Should see the fan guns fire up around 10pm or so." I looked at Boreal's Webcam...a "baseline view" if you will...
|Boreal has a phalanx of Fan Guns ready to blow snow tonight.|
Here's another Tweeter...this one is a Skiing/Snowboarding Social Networking Conference held in Tahoe that I just started following last night, @snowcial get it? Snow+Social=Snowcial. They tweeted Heavenly's intention to begin snowmaking tomorrow. It seems thay want to sell me a ticket to their Convention worse than they want to network, or get social with C/P...I'll tweet 'em the addresses to all of C/P's web outposts.
I looked at the Reno AFD. Some widely scattered instability showers here and there tonight, but the pattern is dry for the next week anyway. I'm relieved that My Mountain won't begin snowmaking operations before November 15th.
Boreal got the fans and guns going tonight. Judging from the PWSs in the neighborhood, conditions are marginal, but thanks to the windtunnel effect of Donner Pass, the wet, warm air is just passing through.
