Company plans expanded snowmaking efforts for Aspen slopes

April 12, 2018 - 7:30 AM

ASPEN, Colo. - Aspen Skiing Co. is planning to expand its snowmaking efforts for the next ski season after experiencing what officials say was one of its more challenging years.

The Aspen Times reports the company aims to redirect $5.5 million in capital expenditures this summer into snowmaking for the next season.

Officials say the lacklustre snow during the past season limited the openings of slopes near Aspen.

The company is planning to fill in spots of ski areas to better connect the terrain.

Officials say the company will double its pumping capacity at Snowmass to create a full connection to the top of the Elk Camp Gondola. Other ski areas will also be served by the expanded snowmaking.
