#Ski Do you know? - Artificial snow

Do you know? - Artificial snow

Published the 03 December 2012

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. »
