Snow Science Web Series: Snowmaking Episode 1

In partnership with Mountain News Corporation and OpenSnow, we produced 10 webisodes focusing on the science of snow. Shooting in Utah, California and Colorado, meteorologist Joel Gratz broke down topics ranging from how steep is steep, how radar tracks snow and how mountains make snow. In this episode — one of the most popular of the series — Joel goes in depth on the science of snowmaking and just how resorts cheat mother nature.
