Continuing with our commitment to high powered and fully automated snowmaking, Boreal took delivery of the  first 5 SMI PUMA snow machines in North America today.  These next generation SMI machines are sweet.  The PUMAs produce more snow at warmer temps using less energy then earlier SMI fan snow machines.  These 5 machines are portable and will see action all over the mountain.  Combined with the addition of 1o low-E VIKING sticks to the lower CORE park and new tower mounted SMI PoleCats on Prospector, we will be able to cover more trails with snow at one time and have tremendous flexibility in getting snow made for early season park expansion like never before!
