CALGARY — Fairmont Hot Springs Resort has invested in new snowmaking technology that will significantly extend its upcoming 2019/2020 ski season. The major investment will allow the resort to open its runs earlier and to remain operational later into the spring.
“Our new snowmaking equipment doubles Fairmont Hot Springs Resort’s capacity to create first-class snow,” says Vivek Sharma, CEO, Fairmont Hot Springs Resort. “With this new technology, which is used for major events like the Olympic Games, we’ll be able to make snow in warmer conditions to open the hill earlier, keep the hill open later and deliver more-consistent snow conditions.”
The Fairmont Hot Springs Resort Ski Area also offers an equipment rentals and ski shop, tube and terrain parks, a snow school, slope-side dining and striking views of the surrounding Rocky Mountains and Columbia Valley.
