Cool Snowflake Factory Tour [mountain ops behind-the-scenes tour]

For anyone who plans on arriving early Friday afternoon, we have a great event planned for you!

From 2:00pm - 4:00pm on Friday, the operations department at Sunday River is offering a complimentary tour of their behind-the-scenes operations. This facility houses large air compressors and water pumps that distribute compressed air and water to over 70 miles of pipe and hundreds of snow guns canvassing the mountain and its seven peaks. Also available for drooling over will be the fleet of 400+ hp diesel powered Pisten Bully and other models of Snow Cats that groom the mountain's slopes during the winter season. Stop by and see how this gigantic ski resort makes its own snow in the winter time!

Again, this event is open and free to all TDIFest attendees! No reservations are necessary, but it would be nice to get a rough head count so the resort knows how many people to expect.

If you're going to be on the mountain by 2pm on Friday and are interested in taking this tour, please post in this thread!
