Snow Making

We love snow, it’s what we do. But when Mother Nature is a little shy we like to give her a hand. We have 215 fully automated snow guns, supplied with water by 9 pumps from 4 pump-houses capable of flowing 330 litres per second. 5 reservoirs with a storage capacity of 285,000,000 litres. We catch and reuse 80% of the water that we use. All this makes for the biggest automated system in the southern hemisphere!
