27 new fan guns for Snow King Resort
27 new TechnoAlpin snow guns are headed to Snow King Resort in Jackson, Wyoming. The TA fan guns are a mix of carriages and towers. Site work has been in progress for several months using excavators belayed by 2 inch cable because of the extremely steep terrain.
The combination of towers and automation was critical because of the terrain, so TechnoAlpin the natural choice. The project is intended to provide early season race training for local and regional race teams.
Funding is a unique combination of municipal, ski club, and the resort. We are seeing this as a trend in the US, early season (October) snowmaking done in very short windows of opportunity in marginal temperature, for a specific purpose.
