PORTAGE, WI (WKOW) — Mother nature isn’t the only one making snow in Southern Wisconsin today. Cascade Mountain is now running their snow-making machines around the clock until opening day on November 23.
Cascade Mountain Manager Matt Vohs says that so far, they’ve converted over two million gallons of water to snow. On average, they’ll turn 120 million gallons of water to snow each year.
“We make the snow and even if Mother Nature doesn’t provide it, she just has to give us cold temps and we’ll get the snow on the ground”.
Crews at Cascade say they try to stockpile as much snow as they possibly can early in the season to build a solid base.
The popular ski hill reported high attendance last year and they’re hoping to match those numbers again this year.
