A Great Story About Snowmaking…

As frigid overnight temperatures hit West Virginia’s mountains, ski resorts will use snowmaking machines to blanket slopes with thousands of tons of snow.

The computerized snow machines spray 7,000 gallons of water per minute and run 24 hours a day. (Photo by Sam Owens.)
