Grand Canyon’s snow has been perfectly blended with machine-made snow, combining nature with human technology, allowing the creation of a truly wonderful terrain for sports such as skiing and snowboarding. Jason Stratton, the Director of Sales and Marketing of Arizona Snowbowl says that the cold temperature and the storm allowed their snowmaking operations to continue without difficulties.
