Default Spirit Mountain Sno-cross 19

Took a jaunt up there earlier in the week, and they'd been shoosting snow for a few daze already. I ventured up again this afternoon, and they had taken several of the cannons out of the loop, and kept on adding to the now almost fifteen to 20' high banks of snow. The blowing snow was pretty saturated and almost wet this afternoon. I went home, and then remembered I had this new cheapo drone, and thought I'd get a try at another vantage point, but by the time I got back up there, they'd shut the cannons off since the daytime temps were approaching 30. They have moved the other cannons over to build some base for the rest of the hill/ski slopes, so I would imagine they will still be adding some to the race venue, but the pressure to make enough to hold the race, as in previous years, is off. It's off to a great start!!

I watch on live stream from here in Quebec. It's nice to see the snow making is going well. Appreciate your updates. Going to be interesting this year with all the brand jumping and guys moving up. Bring I think on.

I wish Lutsen would get with the times and set up for night skiing. At least the Caribou Express runs or something. They way it is now its $80+ apiece for lift tickets then by 3:30 they're chasing us back to the main side for closing time.

This is what it looks like today. All the snowmakers are blowing on other slopes, no more left along the race course. The snow is hard, and dense, I barely left footprints where I walked.
