Ober Gatlinburg Further Improves Efficiency of Snow Making System

By August 27, 2016Announcements

Installation of a new water pipe on the mountain will increase the amount of water going to the pumps, supplying more water where it is needed for snowmaking.

 

Two 4 inch pipes were replaced with a huge 12 inch pipe, which dramatically increases the available capacity to move water by more than 9 times the previous setup. 

Once temperatures are right for snowmaking, nothing else is more important than getting large volumes of water to the snow guns.
