So, lets’ get back to reality here! It’s not quite summer yet, and there are still a few more weeks left to the season. This time of year is another reminder why snowmaking is so vital to many resorts. Not only does it ensure your hill opens earlier in the season, it also ensures there will be enough snow coverage left on the lower and upper parts of the mountain for people to enjoy those beautiful spring skiing days.
Snowmaking is important to me at a resort because it is a science I have been fascinated with for the past 3 years, and it is a department I would really like to get into for my Co-Op this fall! It is one of the more physically intense jobs at a resort but it provides a lot of satisfaction in the sense you get to create a product and see people enjoy it every day (that is when your not sleeping)
Keep tuned for my next post where I will discuss some of the features Panorama’s Snowmaking System has 🙂
