I think if 50 acres was covered with over 100" of man made snow, it would
not show up in this image.

all those NC numbers are due to snowmaking. they have a ton of water and
they couldn't exist without an extensive snowmaking system. This year they
got record cold and blew a daoltihs of snow.

50 acres would be barely a pixel on this image.
