Miracle of Snowmaking and Grooming in 2016

To the editor:

In 1980, we had the Miracle on Ice, and in 2016 it seems we had a Miracle of Snowmaking and Grooming.

I encourage our entire community to give huge cheers to the snowmaking and grooming crews on Whiteface Mountain. This skiing/riding season has been just about the greatest challenge any of us in the industry has seen; most of our community depends on conditions at Whiteface for winter pleasure, income or both.

This season the snowmaking crew put down quality snow, in all the right places, in spite of uncooperative temperatures. There must be secret stashes of snow somewhere, because it seems that every morning after floods of rain, most of the bare patches have been covered up for another day of good sliding.

The grooming crew have a fabulous feel for temperatures and water content also, because over and over again they have pulled off miracles overnight, and given us great texture on the mountain when most of us expected a bullet-proof surface each morning.

I've spoken to many people who have visited other Eastern ski areas, and they all agree that Whiteface has offered the best conditions by far than any other area.

Let's all give a huge cheer for our fabulous snowmaking and grooming crews at Whiteface Mountain!
