We Make Sure It Snows At Mount Pakenham!
All it takes is cooler weather (below freezing), strategically placed snow guns hooked up to water, 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.
