Snowmaking

Snow making and hauling production at full tilt to ensure well covered trails.

GRP athletes assisted the Outdoor Center in the permitting and planning process for a new snow making system on the Upper and Lower Soccer fields. The goal is to make enough snow on cold evenings in November to have a short loop open for skiing by Thanksgiving each year. The system is often employed throughout the entire to ensure good solid conditions when the snow cover is thin. Our snowmaking setup is unique because we are able to recover the heat created from the generator and use it to help heat the buildings on campus.
