Revolutionary snowmaking tech: a lifeline for struggling ski resorts

1 min read

TLDR: A new snowmaking technique called the Snow Laboratory could offer hope to struggling ski resorts facing a lack of natural snow due to global warming. The Snow Laboratory, run by the Barcelona Institute of Materials Science and FGC Turisme, aims to create artificial snow using a mineral called feldspar, which has been found to trigger the freezing of water droplets at higher temperatures. The technique has shown promising results in reducing energy costs by 30% and producing snow at temperatures 1.8 to 2.7 degrees higher than traditional methods. The hope is that this technology will provide a lifeline to ski resorts facing warmer temperatures and water shortages.
