Turn 24,000 gallons of water into a big pile of snow.
Transcend snow-making equipment makes 8,000 cubic feet of snow per hour using 24,000 gallons of water. As long as the temperature is below 25 degrees and the humidity is low, three, multi-positional, mobile snow guns create an impressive pile of snow in short order. The snowmaking machines at Transcend create a unique winter testing environment, allowing us to control study variables, including snow, rain, and ice.
Lewistown, Montana provides a very diverse climate - hot, cold and wet seasons – to complement the snowmaking ability. When the temperature is warmer, the snow guns can create a torrential downpour and when the temperature is just right, the guns can be used to create an icy nightmarish roadway to test deicers and other winter maintenance techniques.
