Gore Mountain introduces new energy efficient snowmakers
National Grid has funded new, energy efficient snowmakers at Gore Mountain.
The 136 energy efficient tower-mounted snow guns are able to produce more than 190 acre-feet of snow annually.
While producing the snow, the new equipment conserves enough energy to save $170,000 annually.
These new snow guns mean that Gore Mountain is able to use the same amount of energy it did 20 years ago at a facility three times the size.
