New snow guns pre­pare for win­ter

Mt Buller News - - FRONT PAGE -

MT BULLER has wel­comed the ar­rival of six new fully au­to­matic SMI Puma snow­mak­ing guns ahead of the 2014 win­ter sea­son.

The ar­rival of these new guns, which will pro­duce eight times more snow than the pre­vi­ous mod­els they have re­placed, com­pletes the au­to­ma­tion of the moun­tain’s snow­mak­ing in­fra­struc­ture on the north­ern side of Bourke Street.

The five re­placed snow­mak­ing guns have been re­lo­cated to the Baldy and Kofler’s ar­eas, sig­nif­i­cantly im­prov­ing the snow­mak­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties on these parts of the moun­tain.

Thanks to sig­nif­i­cant and on-go­ing in­vest­ment over the past few years, Mt Buller now boasts an ex­ten­sive world class snow­mak­ing sys­tem of 219 snow­mak­ing ma­chines across the re­sort, in­clud­ing 141 au­to­matic guns.

NEW SNOW GUNS: Mt Buller has six new fully au­to­matic snow­mak­ing guns for the 2014 sea­son.
