Mountain High's first snowmaking test of the season took place Monday morning, October 26th. This is generally when temperatures dip low enough to make snow and our tests went well. We had a "wet bulb" temperature (aggregate of temperature and humidity) of 17.5 and Humidity of 17% which is very good.
"We made a lot of snow in just a couple hours," says Tubing & Snow Play Manager, Mike Childress. "We ran both types of new guns we purchased and moved about 180 gallons of water per minute. It was a great test."
Over the summer Mountain High added two new TechnoAlpin fan guns and replaced 25 snowmaking hydrants with new, energy-efficient air/water towers. This is a continuation of the resort's effort to go "green" and reduce their carbon footprint.
Opening Day at Mountain High is typically in mid-November but we are ready to begin making snow anytime after November 1st, weather permitting.
