How Snowmaking Happens
A lot of planning, year-round, goes into snowmaking-along with some art and science, and a lot of human effort, often in the bitter cold. Check out this short movie on You Tube to see how snowmaking is done.
First Day Ski January 1st!
**New! Check out these maps posted on the News page to see how far you ski!
Miles Covered: 578! or 921 Kilometers!! by 93 skiers!!!
On January 1st, we skied on the man-made snow since the other trails haven’t had enough snow from the sky yet this season. At 7 AM, it was -8F with wind chill of -34F, but the sun was bright and there was very little wind on the tree lined parts of the trail. The 3 interconnecting loops of trail covered with man-made snow provided multiple routes allowing some variety as we went round and round! We all marveled at the fact that we can be warm despite the cold air temperature. Exercising in the cold brought lots of smiles to all! This event was sponsored by both The Friends of Lapham Peak – Snowmaking and The Peak Nordic Ski Club, Inc.
Snow, Snow, Snow!! (Man-made Snow, that is)
Thank you to all the Volunteer’s and Donor’s that make Snowmaking happen!!! Check out December 26,2017 Snowmaking 3 video’s below:
