Twice the snow. Half the energy.
COMPLETED: Since the Sugarloaf 2020 plan began in 2010, Sugarloaf’s snowmaking system has undergone a complete overhaul, allowing the resort to make more snow in less time, and with less energy, than ever before. More than $2.5 million has been invested in 620 new low-energy HKD snowguns, upgrades to the resort’s snowmaking pipelines, and upgrades to air compressors and water pumps. In each year since this work began, total snowmaking has increased while associated energy consumption has simultaneously decreased.
WHAT’S NEXT: Investment in state-of-the-art low-energy snow guns will continue, as will work with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Maine Department of Environmental Protection to establish a new snowmaking water source on Caribou Pond.
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.
