The story is a short one…we haven’t made much snow this year.  By November 30 last year, the snowmaking system had been “on” and making snow for 242 hours with several trails completed and skiable.  This season, the process has been slowed due to our relatively warm temperatures.  So far, we’ve been able to run the system for only 48 hours.  Kincaid Park is frequently one of the warmer places in Anchorage due to certain air flow patterns and the fact that it is a point of land between two large bodies of water.  While other areas in and around Anchorage with snowmaking abilities might have cold enough temperatures, Kincaid frequently does not.  Please know that we are constantly monitoring the conditions and we are poised to hit the “big, green button” when they are favorable.
