PCMR is getting ready

It sure looks like Vail resorts is doing what it takes to make a good first impression for the 2014/2015 season. With the recent low temperatures and the ensuing ability to make snow on the one hand and the latest storm on the other, there is already enough snow at the resort for this week's opening. The resort has been making amazing quantities of snow and today the Pisten Bullys were in full swing getting the snow whales into shape. With a couple of storms in the forecast, the opening on the 22nd should be a no brainer.
Lately I have been able to skin up to the old angle station, then I would "run out of hill" and just ski back down. Today I was surprised to see that a lot of snow has been made well above it and I was able to skin almost all the way to the yurt.
Here are the pictures I took today (click to enlarge):

Past the Bonanza base there was enough snow to make it close to the yurt
