Snowmaking Test: Complete

October 5, 2018 in Slope Stories, Snow Report - 2 Comments

Temperatures were cold enough this morning to complete our annual snowmaking systems test on Lower Downdraft. This is a major step to get ready for winter, as we recently completed our snowmaking pipeline project and were able to test the system with the replaced pipe and new 600-horsepower pump.

This upgrade to our snowmaking system has given us an immediate 15% increase in water capacity for the upcoming season and is the first phase of doubling our snowmaking capacity with future upgrades.
