We Make Sure It Snows At Mount Pakenham. Although we had a slow start in December 2015 waiting for cold temperatures, we did get enough snow made to open on Boxing Day.
All it takes is cooler weather (below freezing), strategically placed snow guns hooked up to both water and compressed air, and snow can be made. We use plain water with no additives and make enough snow to cover every run. If the temperatures remain low enough, we make snow 24 hours/day until we are done.
