Twice the snow. Half the energy.
COMPLETED: Working toward the ultimate goal of doubling snowmaking
capacity while halving energy consumption, more than 150 new
low-energy snowguns have been added, all water pumps have been
replaced with newer, more efficient models, all air compressors have
been rebuilt, and a mid-mountain pumphouse added to increase summit
WHAT’S NEXT: This summer, roughly $1 million will be spent on 300 new,
state-of-the-art low-energy snow guns. Other resorts in the Boyne
family have both had enormous success with similar model snowguns in
the past, increasing overall output by 25% or more.
We are also continuing to work with the US Army Corps of Engineers and
the Maine Department of Environmental Protection to establish a new
water source on Caribou Pond in the coming years.
When Mother Nature is slacking, we make the weather. We’re working to
bring you more snow than ever, even when Old Man Winter sleeps in.
