Snow Valley is ready to ride the 2018-19 season!
It starts with Snow Making
Snow making is a matter of timing, science and an art form all rolled into one. Under the direction of Marlin Van Zandt, the Snow Makers scrambled to their assigned posts to aim a massive air assisted water sprayer known as a ‘Snow Gun’.
A barrage of snow poured out of 11 guns all at once for 6 consecutive days in freezing weather. To be precise, it was not ‘just’ freezing (0C), it was between 10 and 15 degrees below freezing which allows for the maximum amount of water to be pumped into the air. The result is several large mounds (4 to 6 meters high) of light snow. Enough snow to be pushed and massaged around to cover the hill.
