Artificial Snow


Not enough natural snow? No problem... we have snow cannons...

No need for cannon's here today as we are just now getting the first measurable snowfall of the year.

We have these things, too. Don't know whether they look the same, though. I think any future war should be fought with snow cannons and the politicians and their families should position themselves on the front lines. Most of them have cold heart and icy veins anyway! :)

I wouldn't think you would need this where you are. I do remember when a neighbor hired one of these to pour snow all over his house for a holiday party.

Spectacular terrain around the ski slopes. We have those here at ski resorts as well to get things started early.

While natural snow is better for skiing, these snow machines help keep a layer on snow on the slopes, and can provide an excellent base when it snows again. Strong images as usual.

They seem to be getting the job done!

This does seem to be like "bringing coal to Newcastle."

I'm just not understanding the concept of these snow machines Karl, what? why? :)

Wahrscheinlich aus wirtschaftlichen Gründen notwendig, was?

We use such snow cannons often, but I usually think that in Alp there has to be enough snow :)
