Snowmaking Trial

We are demo-ing (not sure that is really a word) some new snowmaking equipment this fall. These are air-water stick guns that will also require the use of a portable air compressor. Our fan guns are still the major work horses, but these trial guns might be good for some tighter areas. We are going to try them in two locations, 1) down in the base area as shown in these photos and 2) up around the top of Norway Lift. When snowmaking is completed in these two areas, the stick guns will be removed.

Al, do the trails get mowed before snowmaking?

No mowing. There are a few places we trim the brush every 5-10 years.
