Keystone Snowmaking Upgrades
The project consists of power upgrades, digging new pipes, and the installation of new, high-efficiency snowguns that are able to make more snow using less energy. In September, the entire snowmaking system will be ready for testing and charging. In ideal conditions, snow can begin to be made in early October.
Keystone team is busy working on this project now, and it is expected to be completed and available for use beginning with the 2019-20 season.
The capital investment plans at Keystone Resort focus on Dercum Mountain and will automate snowmaking and add additional snowmaking hydrants across 44 acres of terrain, as well as replace aging infrastructure in order to operate more effectively and efficiently in narrow early-season production windows. The upgrades to Keystone’s existing snowmaking infrastructure will take advantage of improved technology to make snow in a more energy-efficient manner.
