http://www.smuggs.com When the mountain opens this weekend, make sure to thank a snowmaker if you see one. Thanks to their efforts - and Smugglers' multimillion dollar investment in an array of new high-efficient tower guns - the resort is now able to open earlier and fuller than ever before. But the job is far from easy. Smuggs snowmakers work 12 hour or more shifts in the most grueling conditions. All in a day's work.
