Ski Jam Katsuyama: Full-scale operation of artificial snow machines for opening Notice regarding acceptance of media coverage of snowmaking work
At Ski Jam Katsuyama (Katsuyama City, Fukui Prefecture, general manager: Atsushi Yoshioka), we are pleased to inform you that the artificial snow making machine will start operating from Friday, November 18th.
Acceptance of interviews due to full-scale operation of artificial snow machines In preparation for the opening of the ski resort on December 17th (Sat), the artificial snow machine will be in operation from November 18th (Fri). The artificial snow making machine uses a plate ice making machine, and the ice is hard and transparent, and the melting time is long, so efficient snow making is possible. In addition, since the surface is made of ice, the board slides well, and advanced skiers can enjoy a sense of speed. In addition, the large ice particles that are generated are hard to melt, so they are less likely to become ice burns, so even beginners can ski with peace of mind.
With the start of operation of the artificial snow making machine, we have created an opportunity for you to see the state of snow making and the generated snowy mountains up close.
