From Early Season Startup in North America
Mount Saint Louis Moonstone fires up some of its huge fleet of TechnoAlpin guns. They have both sticks and fans and everything is full auto. This is a first class installation with several new TF10 towers with all the proper pads.
Sun Valley ID fires some of its 560 fully automated Rubis and Borax guns. 25 visible in this shot, and likely a hundred more on this trail, on in just 7 minutes. Don’t try this at home without an automated system. Pretty high density coverage for a western resort but Sun Valley has built a big part of its iconic reputation on it snowmaking prowess. Like most of the west so far in October, not very cold temperatures so far and really no help from natural snow.
