Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort Snow Making
This has been one of my favorite photographs since first taking it. At Schweitzer Ski Resort, in Sandpoint Idaho, mid morning with cold temperatures enabling snow making. The photo shows so much. The contrasts in colors from the clean sharp white snow, the yellow of the snow making machine, to the deep blue just above the dark trees and ridge. The corduroy design, from a grooming machine, showing the recently spread snow.
From my snow making days I can also appreciate the perfect conditions to create such good snow. Mid teens in temperatures. You can see the fresh pile being created with the more distant snow machine. This style gun is actually airless so the fan alone is what pushes the water away from the guns. There is no distance at all between gun and snow. Snow making piles of snow are actually best left to sit for a while for better quality snow.
