New snow guns prepare for winter
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.
