Reservoir

Down below the bottom of Pali Lift we have a 5.5 acre snowmaking reservoir. Our stream diversion requirements only allow us to divert a small amount of water at a time. During the snowmaking season, we make that small diversion 24 hours a day. We store the diverted water in the reservoir. When the temperatures get cold enough for snowmaking we pump water uphill out of the reservoir at a much high rate than our diversion rate.

One of the coolest things about winter and ski season... snowmaking, that is. Are there any open spots on the team?? Even volunteer!! Snow-making is a passion of mine along with the cold and the mountains!
