Despite preparing for another cold winter season ahead, Boler Mountain is looking to combat Ontario’s fluctuating temperatures on Canada’s most southern ski hill.
The organization unveiled its new Positive Temperature Snowmaking Unit, reportedly the first machine of its kind in the country.
“It’s capable of making snow at virtually any temperature,” explained Marty Thody, a member of Boler Mountain’s management team.
“We’re in production right now, it’s a beautiful day, about 10 degrees (C) out, and it doesn’t make tons of snow, but we’re out there producing snow at the very top where it’s most challenging for us to use our traditional production snow methods.
Thody said that the unit can still produce snow in 17 C weather, and the goal is to be able to keep their west hill terrain open longer and sooner.
