The introduction of a new snowmaking system will increase capacity at Mt. Hotham
With global warming taking on unprecedented turns everywhere, Australia’s Hotham ski area has invested $1.7 M to increase snowmaking capacity by 50 per cent for the upcoming season.
The resort has installed 22 new TechnoAlpin fan snowguns hthroughout the Heavenly Valley snowmaking system. Two of these M-18 guns are mounted on arms providing further reach and hang time (for the snowflakes to fall to the ground) and even less intrusion onto the ski slope.
So long as temperatures are low enough, the snowmaking allows the resort to produce a solid and consistent snow base for a longer period and particularly at the start and end of ski season 2010.
