Artificial snow

Did you know?

- The artificial snow is easily composed of just water and fresh air.

- No additives are mixed (forbidden in France)

- The snow fully returns back to nature as water form when melting, as clean as it was when removed.

- Artificial basins are built to hold the water coming from snow melting in order to fuel the canons. So that nothing is taken from natural lakes or rivers.

 

 

Les Gets has chosen an artificial system that is being used moderatly.

The whole pool of snow guns are not being put on at the same time.

Every year a snow making priority plan is put in place in order to limit the consumptions.

 

There are 130 snow guns in the full area and 5 people are specifically employed to make them work.
