We all know that Michigan weather can be unpredictable, one day there’s six inches of snow and the next there’s none. This would be detrimental for skiers and snowboarders if it wasn’t for air compressor’s ability to create and distribute snow! This is the case not only in Michigan but across the country and even the world. The creation of artificial snow is important in keeping resorts open all winter long.
How it's done
The creation of artificial snow isn’t rocket science, in fact it’s quite simple. If you’ve been to a ski resort you may have noticed a pond towards the bottom of the mountain. When more snow is needed water from the pond is pulled through pipes to the top of the mountain where air compressors push the water through blowers and into the air. The water comes out as mist and freezes before hitting the ground, creating snow.
Efficiency is key
Compressors play the largest role in artificial snowmaking, as a result they make up 75% of the cost. The compressor system must hold up year after year to ensure all guests can enjoy their experience. These two factors require a well operating system, for help making the best decision for your resort click here to contact us.
