Mount Snow Makes Snow, and lots of it

WEST DOVER, VT – There is an unfamiliar sound in
the Mount Snow Valley, it’s the sound of silence. With Peak Resorts
investing $9 million in state of the art fan guns, gone are the days of
loud air-water equipment, in is the quiet hum of progress.

Mount Snow’s veteran team of snowmakers hit the slopes Tuesday night
putting North America’s finest fleet of snow making machines to work.
Firing up a total of 111 guns Mount Snow is continuing their early
season push, having already opened with lift service on October 17th,
the earliest in its history.

With an early season window of cold temperatures the decision was made
to begin an aggressive campaign with the intention of opening with top
to bottom lift service the second week of November. Mount Snow plans to
open with two of its mountain faces spinning lifts, both the Main Face
and Carinthia. Carinthia will open with a full terrain park on Nitro
featuring boxes, rails and jumps.
