Snowmaking Fund

snowmaking pictureTremendous progress has been made since the Snowmaking project began. The well, pump, pond and electrical outlets are in place for the inner 1K loop. The underground pipes that supply water will be installed by the time this year’s ski season rolls around. That means the DNR staff can immediately make snow when the conditions are right and the underground delivery system will mean a lot more snow, a lot sooner, as much of the snowmaking time has been spent moving hoses from gun to gun. So while we’re sleeping, the DNR crew will be churning out the snow.

The next step is to expand the inner loop, but the electrical work and water infrastructure will require additional funding. This next trail extension will extend the inner loop to the south for a few hundred yards and then head up the lighted hill to the crossover and then loop back down to the 1K loop. When this is completed, it will not only offer excellent skiing when mother nature hasn’t given us snow, plus the loop will have enough variety to satisfy the most critical.

As of March, 2005, $82,238 had been raised. As of December, 2009, that figure has exceeded to $190, 000. But we are presently in need of more donations to expand the manmade section to include the above additions. You can help keep the “snowball” rolling. A donation of any amount is appreciated.  Special recognition will be given to donors who meet these levels:

  • Avalanche $10,000 & Up
  • Glacier     $5,000
  • Blizzard   $1,000
  • Snowman $500
  • Snowball $100
