Giants Ridge Construction Updates

New Snowmaking Infrastructure

Giants Ridge, in collaboration with Snow Machines Inc. (SMI), is embarking on a substantial overhaul of its alpine snowmaking system. This ambitious project involves several key components:

infrastructureInfrastructure Replacement: The existing, aging snowmaking waterlines, water hydrants, electrical wiring, and pedestals will be replaced. Additional water and electrical infrastructure will also be added through the project to expand overall coverage on the mountain. This upgrade ensures a more reliable and efficient system.
AutomationAutomation Implementation: Giants Ridge will introduce automation controls to its snowmaking process. This means that the snow making machines can now turn on and off automatically, optimizing snow production based on optimal temperature conditions. More efficient snowmaking!
snowmakingEfficient Snowmaking Machines: A total of 74 new tower mounted fan snowmaking machines will be installed, complementing the 23 snowmaking machines acquired in the fall of 2023 and the existing fleet. These tower-mounted fixtures will significantly enhance overall snow production capabilities.
App-controlOnline App Control: The resort will gain the ability to manage the flow and output of these snowmaking machines through an online app. This fine-tuned control ensures maximum efficiency and high-quality snow production.

The benefits of this upgrade include:

timingAdvantageous Timing: Automated snowmaking allows the resort to be prepared at all times. The snowmaking machines can respond automatically to favorable weather conditions, ensuring optimal snow coverage.
efficiency-boostEfficiency Boost: By controlling snow production via an online app, Giants Ridge can maximize efficiency. This is especially crucial during early-season snowmaking and marginal weather conditions.
energyEnergy Savings: Not only will the ski area produce more snow within shorter weather windows, but it will also reduce overall energy consumption associated with snowmaking operations.
completionAnticipated Completion: The new automated snowmaking system is expected to be fully operational by November 2024, aligning with the start of snowmaking for the 2024/2025 winter season.
