‘Snow­fac­tory’ goes on trial

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - LOCAL NEWS -

A “Snow­fac­tory” has gone on trial at Cairn­Gorm Moun­tain.

Staff at the re­sort are re­ceiv­ing train­ing on the Snow­fac­tory from Tech­noAlpin, which de­signed and in­stalled the tech­nol­ogy.

The trial will last for two months and is the first use of the snow maker in Scot­land. It is hoped that the Snow­fac­tory will pro­vide guar­an­teed snow cover. The ini­tial ob­jec­tive is to pro­duce a be­gin­ners’ area for teach­ing.

Janette Jansson, gen­eral man­ager at Cairn­Gorm Moun­tain, said: “The whole team are re­ally look­ing for­ward to hav­ing the ma­chine in ac­tion for the two-month trial. It’s all look­ing promis­ing for this win­ter sea­son.”
