SnowMagic® Inc. provides temperature-independent snowmaking to create snow-covered settings and recreational facilities, outdoors and indoors, without relying on natural snow and/or cold weather.
Is it real snow?
YES! Patented SnowMagic® LLC technology creates snow using water with no additives or artificial materials. It’s cold – check it out in action HERE.
What keeps it from melting?
Snow melts; a successful SnowMagic® installation starts with good site planning and management.
We work with you to design efficient drainage to remove melted snow quickly and re-use the water.
Prior to opening there is a period of snow production to build up a sufficient base of snow, which will self-insulate the surface.
Replenish the snow surface as needed – snow can be made 24 hours/day or during off-hours.
Other design elements can include climate control (indoor venues) and site planning to account for sun/shade factors.
Does the ICS System require you to use snow additives?
The ICS System does not require any chemicals or snow additives of any kind. SnowMagic® is an environmentally friendly snow making company. Water is the only “ingredient.” If you are drawing from a natural body of water, as opposed to a well or municipal supply, you may wish to filter the water to remove sediment.
What is the average micron size of your snow?
The average micron size (diameter) of our snow is 0.1 to 0.3 mm.
How does the snow get distributed?
The ICS System equipment makes use of a distribution hose that enables us to distribute the snow more than 600 feet from the ICS unit in any direction.
How much snow can an ICS unit make per day?
An ICS unit produces 150 tons per day, which is equivalent to approximately 11,000 cubic feet of snow.
How much power and water is required to operate the ICS system equipment?
An ICS System uses approximately 400KwH and 32 gallons of water per minute.
