They had the guns blowing around the star loop. Asked when they would be open and the guy was hoping in the next couple of weeks. Here's to hoping for cold weather for more snow.

I spotted about a dozen guns positioned around the star loop, with crews out powering things up. Downhill area was a winter wonderland with 30+ guns blasting.

Three Rivers sent out an update on their snowmaking operations this season:
We are always committed to balancing the protection of natural resources with the ability to provide recreation opportunities, and the current drought conditions make this approach even more important. Rest assured, we will have manufactured snow trails for skiing this year, but the timeline for making snow and the length of trail we can snow-in and groom, especially at Hyland Lake Park Reserve, will depend on weather conditions and adjustments we can make to our snowmaking practices. We will only be making snow in the most ideal weather conditions – sustained cold temperatures with minimal wind – which means the process will likely be slower and take longer this winter. The quality of grooming and care for the trails will be the same, but things may look a little different. Practice and start-finish areas may be smaller, trails may be narrower and the trail base may not be as deep. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Drove through the parking lots of Hyland on Saturday afternoon. Did not see any snow-making equipment in-place or operating.
