Mount Snow Has Their Snowguns Turned On

The temperatures have been dropping all over Vermont, meaning that the opportunity to get the snowguns running is going to be taken advantage of by every mountain that is able. You had better believe that Mount Snow is one of those mountains.

With the temperatures continuing to fall, Mount Snow was able to officially start snowmaking operations for the 2019/2020 season. Snowmaking teams have been able to put down a base coating on Cascade, Canyon, Free Fall, and River Run trails, ahead of opening day.

Over the last three years, Mount Snow has made more than $33 million in snowmaking upgrades, giving the mountain bragging rights to the most powerful snowmaking system in the Northeast. These upgrades increased snowmaking coverage to 83% of the 600-acre resort as part of a plan to achieve 100% snowmaking coverage.

"It's always exciting when we get to fire up our snowmaking operations for the first time of the season," said Erik Barnes, Vice President and General Manager of Mount Snow. "People have really come to know Mount Snow as a snowmaking powerhouse over the years, and I can't wait to see what our snowmakers can do, and to watch their efforts translate into trails opening all across the mountain, as we head towards Thanksgiving."
