Snow Making


About Ski Sapphire Valley snow making: The resort installed a completly 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!

Making Snow at Ski Sapphire

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!
