Default Ski Lima 2019

We had a great storm last weekend that allowed us to open the hill for the first time this winter. Countless trips up the tow day and night for the three day weekend. That was followed by 24 hours of 40 degrees and rain. Thankfully we still had a couple inch base remaining that rapidly froze. Friday there were squalls off of Lake Erie that dropped several inches of dry wind packed on top of the crust. It looked too pretty to not make a mess of it, so we hit it for a few hours tonight. (First opportunity since the snow). I might still end up out there again after the kids are in bed. This was our fourth night using the lights, it’s a game changer. Special thanks to the FVTC future electricians for the help with wire gauge sizing!

Here are a few pics

Some, but way shy of “normal”. I hear that it’s all in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan

Earliest start ever, we got 6 or 8”
I only rolled the tow line and 3 sled runs as this will melt in a few days. I wasn’t going to run the tow but after a dozen trips running the boys up on the snowmobile it was time. More today after school

in regards to training adults.

Ski Lima has become a teachable moment in apprentice electrician training in the upper midwest.

a simple question " what size wire" has become a great case study to present voltage drop to young trades-people.

they get a kick out of the facility when it shows up on their final exam. the unit on branch circuit and feeder calculations is dry...... asking them what size wire for the various electrical elements gets their attention and makes the associated code much more applicable.
