The Mid Season Makeover – Stowe’s Strategy for Splendid Snow Surfaces
(STOWE, VT) January 29, 2018 – What’s a mountain to do, when the first half of your ski season is filled with natural snow and temperatures optimal for world-class snowmaking? Answer: Turn the snowmaking system back on and make the snow surfaces even better.
With over 90% of Stowe Mountain Resort’s terrain open with great coverage and snow conditions, it’s time to reinforce winter with a mountain makeover. Stowe’s snowmakers will continue to take full advantage of productive temperatures to build up base depths that will last late into the winter season. Additional mid-season snowmaking trails include: Upp.er Lord, North Slope, T-Line, Crossover, Perry Merrill, Crossover, Gondolier, Main Street, Ridgeview, Sunrise, Standard, T-Line, Side Street, Comp Hill, Cat Walk, Slalom Hill, Liftline and Middle National.
“We are currently engaged in an aggressive resurfacing effort with our snowmaking system,” says Scott Reeves, Stowe’s VP of Mountain Operations. “During the weekdays we are taking advantage of cold temperature windows to make as much snow as possible,” Reeves adds.
