Belleayre Is Investing To Improve The Guest Experience

Belleayre will add 20 fully automated SMI Polecat fan guns on Dot Nebel, one of the most popular trails at Belleayre. These upgrades will enable to produce more snow in less time and with less effort. Once the mountain’s conditions reach optimal snowmaking temperatures and humidity levels, the advanced system will automatically activate the SMI Polecat fan guns. Each gun will be fine-tuned based on its specific conditions, allowing all the automatic guns to start making snow very quickly.

By investing in this cutting-edge, energy-efficient technology, Belleayre will be prepared to meet the challenges of the unpredictable weather patterns experienced in recent years. As conditions change, the system will continuously adjust, enhancing snow quality and increasing snow coverage.
