The trail maintenance crew at Pontedilegno-Tonale Resort use a white reflective tarp designed to preserve snow on the melting Presena Glacier in Northern Italy.

Each strip is 5 meters wide and 70 meters long. They can preserve up to 70% of the snow below. Resorts across Europe use this ‘snow farming’ method to reduce the need for snowmaking at the beginning of the season.

Why don’t more American resorts use this tech?
