Snow Summit and Bear Mountain purchased over $500,000 in new snowmaking equipment for the 2010-2011 winter season. Today we unloaded a delivery of the latest technology snowmaking fan guns to make more quality snow at the earliest date possible. Each resort’s snowmaking system can convert about 5,000 to 6,000 gallons of water per minute into snow, which is a stream flow that would fill up a back yard pool in just 5 minutes! Traditionally our target opening day is the Thanksgiving holiday, weather permitting. Our crews are preparing for the cold weather and setting up the new fan guns. We’ll let you know as soon as we charge up the lines!
