#TBT deep days of seasons past. Big Congrats to Freeride Team Coach Matthew who is getting married this weekend! #skitheeast #skimagicvt #ifsa #freeride #winter #snow #dropcliffsnotbombs #dropping #wedding Alli is one lucky lady!
New 1 ton 400 hp pump motor now installed, soon to be followed by our 300 and then lake pump 150. Combined with our new Variable Frequency Drives, Magic will become the 1st Vermont Ski Area (yeah, first!) to run all its snowmaking pumps from lake to mountain with energy-efficient VFDs! #efficiencyvermont #makebettermagic
Our new 400 hp pump motor arriving to replace our recently refurbished 300 hp pump motor which will replace our 250 hp pump motor which is then planned for installing into our future new mid-mountain booster pump house next year to increase pressures for snowmaking at higher elevations for expanded use of new low-energy snow machines. Ok that's a mouthful. While all this takes a bit longer to implement this year, it sets the mountain up for better snowmaking efficiencies and coverage now and into the future. Along with new energy efficient VFDs being installed in main pump house, and new 150 hp lake pump motor also being installed, we should be ready to test and make snow mid-next week as temps go from mid 40s currently to 20s hopefully next week. #makebettermagic
