***Attention Boyne Mountain lovers...we greatly appreciate your enthusiasm about the idea of summer snow and appreciate even more that you are not mad at us for pranking you on April Fools' Day!
Here at Boyne Mountain, we have always experimented with all sorts of snowmaking equipment and once again, we are back at it. Just a few short years ago, we unveiled our new and greatly improved version of the snow gun called the Boyne Low-E fan gun. We can currently produce large amounts of snow, just as well as or better than Mother Nature, when the temperatures dip below freezing .
This spring, we are excited to announce that we have configured a simple, environmentally friendly formula that will allow us to make snow at any temperature. Long-time friend and scientist, Professor Ludwig Von Drake - hailing from Vienna, Austria, brought an experiment to BOYNE back on April 1, 2013. Our team, along with Von Drake, has recently perfected and patented the snow. It is a non-melting snow that we call, Easy Freezy Snow. The consistency is light, fluffy, and parallels to the feel of gliding down the slopes on a natural powder day. The magic happens by feeding the water lines into the Boyne Low-E fan guns with the addition of the Easy Freeze formula and poof, we got powder. The Easy Freezy Snow, as mentioned, does not melt; however, it will biodegrade after seven days. Each week, we will pump out a fresh 24 inches and allow you to make fresh lines everyday of the year. Minimal grooming is required.
We know what you are thinking....really, this year?! Even with all the wonderful, natural snowfall, we discovered that our guests deserve and want more. We plan to start making Easy Freezy Snow mid-May (or whenever the natural snow melts) and will keep Victor and Hemlock open all year round. So this year, don't put your skis and boards away...come to Boyne Mountain, where every day is a snow day.◂ Return to News & Updates
