Snowmaking improvements at Caberfae Peaks

The resort’s snowmaking arsenal was expanded with the addition of four new Super PoleCat guns and nine PoleCat towers from SMI Snowmakers, while on the South Peak run crew laid over 1000 ft of snowmaking pipe to expand coverage.

In addition the bearings on the top bull wheels of ski lifts were replaced and the beginners’ ski area has been enhanced by the installation of a flying carpet lift, more snowmaking pipe and three snowmaking towers.

Caberfae Peaks began its 2018 – 2019 season on 17 November.
