    Hi All
    Just wondering if some one can help me out, I heard on the grapevine that Selwyn have recently installed some smaller snow guns in addition to the original gear.
    As we are looking at snow making trials in the not to distant future could some one post the details of what snowmaking infrastructure and equipment there is at Selwyn.
    Like Selwyn, Ben Lomond is a small snowfield, privately run without the big reserves of the big resorts.
    Many thanks
    Bulldozer

    Better still, make your own snow guns from bits at Bunnings. You can build a gun for under $300. Make 10 and you can cover a run [​IMG]
