Stowemaking - Snow making video at guess where

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

This just went live today. I saw it on Sunday and thought it was pretty cool, and answers some questions people may have had about snowmaking. I personally was surprised when they showed the control room. Enjoy. Only a few more days until they fire those bad boys up.

This is great! You always hear about mountains upgrading their snowmaking equipment, and getting ready for the season... but this really puts in perspective how much work and coordination it actually takes to pull it off.

 

Much respect to snowmakers everywhere!

well produced, very informative, why surprised with the control room ? is some of the controls proprietary? What is surprising to see is the guy working on the snow gun in what appears to be some type of man lift with no safety harness. hope OSHA doesn't see that.

I was just surprised to see how much info they were dealing with in the control room.

Yeah, some serious multi tasking, or they have been analysts on Wall Street keeping track of everything with all those screens.

What's funny is that the guy watching those screens is like a 10th generation Woodchuck. He's more used to dragging hoses and welding stuff.
