Snowmaking is an important production process to ski resorts around the globe. By making snow, ski resorts supplement the natural snow that has fallen to improve what is already on the mountain and to extend their ski seasons through the early spring. Snow is made by forcing water and pressurized air through a snow gun and then onto the slopes, and requires low temperatures -- the threshold temperature for snowmaking increases as humidity decreases. Air compressors are a critical component of this process to help resorts worldwide consistently and reliably help produce snow for rideable conditions throughout the entire season.
