More Snow, Less Energy

More Snow, Less Energy


You want to see the stars? We’ve said
let’s make sure the lights are separate
from the snowmaking
My name is Marcus Helmerich. I work for the Power and Distribution Department at
Keystone and Breckenridge resorts.
Snow making is at the forefront of how we operate. We can remotely monitor the
efficiency of it. We’ve rewired the
lighting that has permanent power on it
so snowmaking can be on independent of
the lights and the lights can be on
only for skiing at night. It’s complex
and it’s taken a couple of years of
planning and development so one can be
turned on and off every night and the
other one can be on 24/7 for making snow. It’s just something that I think is
going to make a difference.
