At Stratton, snowmaking blankets 95 percent of the terrain with a system so powerful it can bury three football fields in a foot of snow in just one hour. And thanks to a 150-million gallon water storage pond (plus another 72 million gallons in reserve), Stratton has the raw material to cover every single trail on the mountain with two feet of snow; using HKD tower guns that would take 13.5 days, based on ideal snowmaking conditions.
When are the conditions "ideal" for snowmaking? 18 degrees Fahrenheit, 40 percent humidity, winds at 5-10 mph. You need a little wind to spread out your snow. Depending on the conditions, we're maxing out on either air or water (11,400 gallons a minute). In marginal temperatures, it's air. In colder weather, we max out the water, which is far more efficient.
