Mt Hotham Falls Creek - - FRONT PAGE -

IN the process of putting to­gether our piece on the $4.4 mil­lion up­grade, MHFC News was also treated to an in­sight into snow ter­mi­nol­ogy.

As we un­der­stand it that stuff com­ing out of the snow guns is ‘moun­tain­made’ snow rather than man-made snow, be­cause women can make snow too. They don’t call it ar­ti­fi­cial snow be­cause it’s not ar­ti­fi­cial. It’s real snow, made with fan-forced wa­ter when­ever we have the right con­di­tions – cold air and low hu­mid­ity. It skis beau­ti­fully and it’s no dif­fer­ent from the snow that comes from Mother Na­ture or for that mat­ter Fa­ther Na­ture.
