Ski Sapphire Snow System

About Ski Sapphire Valley snow making: The resort installed a completely new system during the 2017-2018 summer season. Each of the HALO snowmakers have their one computer and weather station to optimize snow output! All we need is cold weather and we can bury the mountain!

Did you know....some of the first snow guns at Ski Sapphire Valley were hand made. Metal, galvanized plumbing pipe was assembled with a water and air intake and then a reducing nozzle helped atomize the flow!

Ski Sapphire Snow Making

The basics of snowmaking...Ski Sapphire Valley still uses a few of these ground based guns but most of the snow is made with the HALOs! Ski Sapphire Valley pulls hundreds of thousands of gallons of water out of the Horsepasture River and returns it almost daily as melting snow!

Ski Sapphire hours of operations can change at the last minute due to weather conditions!

Think Cold! Think Snow!
