    Absolutely. Keep the bulk of the snow in a big pile, to keep the surface area to volume ratio low. Any stuff that falls up higher can reflect sunlight and cool down the ground so it is prepped for when it's time to spread it all out.

    I love watching people using physics to their advantage.

    Big inversions most nights limiting opportunities for snowmaking higher up.

    Even with an inch of rain last night, the magic carpet run is still looking good for the QBW :)
