As reported by KKCO 11 News, a new pipeline to transport water to Powderhorn Mountain Resort in Colorado, US, for snowmaking was approved by Grand Junction’s city council this week.

"What this project involves is for the City to provide up to 140 acre ft of water and it would be piped and pumped up to the Powderhorn facility for snow making," Randi Kim, Utilities Director for Grand Junction, said.

Powderhorn says the pipeline, running from Anderson Reservoir to the resort, will make their season longer.

"It starts to insulate us from low snowfall years," Ryan Schramm, General Manager at Powderhorn, said. "It also allows us to keep more people employees for longer periods of time."

The pipeline still requires approval from the US Forest Service. If that is received, Powderhorn hopes to begin construction this summer.
