Artificial snow, a resource from the natural environment
« Artificial snow produced by snow cannons is the same as snow which falls from the sky.
It's simply pressurised water put through a spray system known as a snow cannon.
Water is vaporised in the ambient air and is then instantly frozen due to winter's sub-zero temperatures.
Contrary to popular belief, additives are not a part of the process. Water is drawn from high-altitude reservoirs filled by naturally melted snow. »
