No hype from me on 75cms

The first 75 cms of snow can start accumulating mid-October, or mid-November. One night's wind can blow  off the top if there isn't enough snow fencing in place. One pass with the groomer and the 75cms is no where near 75cms. It can be dry, or wet, or a mix. Too wet and heavy and there can be snapped trees to deal with.

Lots of work to be done yet, and those who have skied here for decades know how much stuff there is to cover. Sugar Lump doesn't need as much as Eagle to open.

Resources to complete brush removal, resources to complete lifts, resources to cut fallen trees in the glades, resources to snow fence - I'm focusing on what needs to be done.

Wishing for realistic expectations.
