What year Tucker is that? Love the tucker snow cats

I assume you use snow guns only for downhill, not Nordic skiing? What's the best way to get updates on cross-country conditions?

Love that photo!

Opening day still tentatively set for Dec 22 ?

Woohoo!!!! The best time of the year is when the snow guns appear! 😉
