Good plans shape good decisions. Developing and implementing a snowmaking master plan can help you provide the best snow surfaces to your guests for the least total cost.
SMI has an experienced global team dedicated to engineering and design. From retrofitting existing systems to modernize a system, to adding trails to creating a master plan for a brand new resort, SMI has the experience and expertise to create an efficient and cost-effective solution that will be successful and custom-tailored to your resort.
SMI will overview the existing snowmaking system coverage areas, weather data, water supply and distribution, power supply and distribution, air supply and distribution, snow gun fleets and capital/operating costs at your ski resort. We then take the time to understand your mountain, preferences and costs to help design a high value solution.
SMI has multiple engineers to produce customized CAD drawings and specifications. Drawings and output can be color and/or black and white. Coverage areas, piping schemes, power plans, pumping and compressor layouts, valve pits, snow gun startup plans, tower and portable snow gun layouts, and building layouts are just some of the output you can receive. Detailed specifications for all equipment and installation can also be provided for competitive bidding purposes.
