As winter approaches, ski season is almost here, and there are a couple of ski resorts near Kansas City and St. Louis in Missouri. The general manager of Hidden Valley Ski Resort, Tony Santora, explained that they have been preparing all summer for the upcoming ski season. This includes completing inspections and bringing on staff for the season.
Santora also described the snowmaking process at the resort, stating that they make all the snow that skiers use. It takes about four days of continuous snowmaking for the resort to make enough snow to open. He mentioned that they look for a wet bulb temperature, a measure of humidity and temperature, to determine when they can make snow. Along with skiing, snow tubing, and snowboarding, the resort also provides lessons for beginners.
