On October 13 we tested our brand new system and were hugely successfully making snow at 30-32 degrees at the Base Area. Using six of our brand new Super Pole Cat fan guns at lower elevations, the snow was flying! Over the summer, we continued to invest in our state-of-the-art snowmaking operations with an additional 4.7 million dollars in new equipment and upgrades that include 325 HKD tower guns, 150 energy efficient land guns, 16 Super Pole Cat fan guns and seven miles of new snowmaking pipe. This year's improvements will allow Stowe to operate with greater energy efficiency and eliminate 100,000 gallons of diesel storage, use and emissions. From a skier's and rider's standpoint, the new snowmaking increases potential for more early season terrain, increases overall snow quality and allows our mountain operations crew to resurface the mountain quicker.
