TRUCK LOADS OF SNOW & EFFICIENT ENERGY USE

With 100% snowmaking, Crotched is indeed among the ski resorts in the US that can boast the largest per acre production capacities. Over 100 fan guns are connected by a network large underground electrical wire and over 3,800 feet of 12" and 8" pipe. This system allows us to pump over 6,000 gallons of water per minute to our slopes; this is 1,250 tons per hour or one truckload every minute. Along with these advantages, it is believed that fan gun technology provides a better snow more consistent snow.

Regarding energy efficiency, we can lay claim to being among the best. These efficiencies are due to the fact we operate with 100% fan guns that no one else can claim in New England. Fan guns do not have to operate with expensive and inefficient diesel generators to pump high-pressure air in a network of pipes all over the mountain. Complementing the efficiency of this system in the Fall of 2015, two-thirds of our electric use is now sourced locally from renewable energy.
