This year will be a good test of the resort’s new and improved snowmaking system. Right now, with chilly temps prevailing in the Treasure Valley, the ski area has been making its own snow regardless of the lack of clouds. The system, which sprays snow from a set of snow “cannons” at strategic locations around the mountain, might allow for an opening as early as Thanksgiving week.

While we’re talking about artistic ways to anticipate the holidays, let’s consider the various performances that will light up the stage in the coming months. For example, you can buy tickets now for December performances of The Nutcracker at The Morrison Center. Check out their website for more shows, at
