I haven't heard any snow making yet. Today with it's low temps may be different?

I had been led to believe the Kosi Express would reopen tomorrow after maintenance but reading KT's report today, they say it won't reopen until June 6th so I doubt there will be any early season shots from me before that :-(

Forecasts of substantial snow over the weekend have evaporated but I won't be surprised to see some more snow over the next few days / nights.
