Eldora Mountain Resort announced today that it began its snowmaking operations this weekend, thanks to colder temps and some new natural snow. Eldora added 100 new low-energy HKD snow guns to its fleet for more snowmaking capacity and added efficiency.
“These new guns will significantly reduce our energy usage for snowmaking and provide a great snow surface for Eldora skiers and riders in the early season,” says Eldora spokesman Rob Linde.
There’s a chance for snow from this Friday night through Saturday night to assist Eldora’s snow guns. Check out the video embedded below and to the left that provides a look inside Eldora’s snowmaking operations and its new guns. Eldora plans to open on Friday, Nov. 16.
