It was the worst thing that could happen. At the height of the early snowmaking season, an essential vertical turbine pump went out. Without a steady supply of water, multiple snowmaking cannons sat idle.

Idle pumps meant no snowmaking. No snowmaking meant pushing back the opening date of the season and losing significant revenue.

But that recommendation didn’t quite happen with this particular pump.
