GUARANTEED SNOW from November to April!

Plans are underway for a snowmaking factory at Glencoe Mountain. The resort have joined forces with sports crowdfunding platform, Pledge Sports, to raise some of the £460,000 needed to buy and install a device, which can create 100 cubic metres of snow per day. Unlike conventional snow cannons, which require cold, calm weather, the TechnoAlpin Snowfactory can operate in mild, wet and windy conditions at temperatures as high as 25°C.

 

The Snowfactory would be the first in Scotland, but the units have already proved effective on slopes in Eastern Europe, New Zealand and Australia. As well as winter sports, it would allow special snowy events to be offered at other times of the year.

 

Andy Meldrum, owner and managing director of Glencoe Mountain, says the new Snowfactory could be switched on in early November to build massive piles of snow ahead of an official opening day for the slopes on 1 December thus guaranteeing recreational skiing and training opportunities in the early season.

 

Glencoe Mountain are now working hard to generate support for the project through Pledge Sports crowd funding and if you would like to support this ambitious project or know and organisation or person who might, visit or share this link:-
