An early start to the Ski Season


Accurate + affordable snow depth monitoring

In partnership with Juniper Systems

What if you could know the precise snow depth on your ski runs? 

You could make less snow, move less snow and provide a better experience for your guests. 

More importantly SnowGage will save you money.

(10%-15% reduction in overall operating costs can be achieved).

SnowGage pings through the snow, with our proprietary wide band radar unit, 

to provide precise snow depth to an accuracy of just 2 inches, 

for a fraction of the cost (Under $20,000) 

of less reliable solutions offered by our competitors. 

Major resorts currently utilizing SnowGage:

Steamboat, Aspen/Snowmass, Telluride & Copper in Colorado

Deer Valley, Alta, Solitude and Snowbasin in Utah 

Many more resorts coming online this year.

Customer Testimonials

Bill Jensen, CEO at Telluride

We use SnowGage at Tellurid and it has proven to be a very useful technology to make better snowmaking and grooming decisions.

Doug Holler, Director at Dartmouth Skiway

SnowGage is an extremely valuable tool for farming and managing snow making and grooming. We hope to better utilize the data by combining it with gallons of water-pumped to know when our snow cover is adequate for the season.

The power of liquid nitrogen:

Liquid nitrogen is bottled up winter/cold. At -321 it is the most abundant and limitless element on our planet. In fact the air you breathe is made up of about 80% Nitrogen and most of the rest our vital Oxygen of course. 

We tap into the power of liquid nitrogen (basically compressed Nitrogen in liquid form stored in large tanks) to help us make snow when Mother Nature is not cooperating with the right temperatures to make good snow. 

NitroSnow now gives resort operators the ability to make perfect snow at outside temperatures of 5-10 degrees higher than normal (28-38 degrees ambient temps). 

It truly is a magical element that we have now harnessed for good, to start your ski season early and even make it last longer. And best of all it's economical and uber-environmentally friendly to. 

NitroSnow is powerful new technology created and delivered by EcoTecSnow to your local snow resort by the tanker full. There are no up front costs needed, we just deliver the cold weather you need and want to make  PERFECT snow on demand.

PowderMaker 2.0

What does it do?

Unlike a power tiller, that uses hydraulics and horsepower to beat the snow surface and lay down the all to familiar "corduroy" snow surface, the PowderMaker 2.0 gently peels up the snow surface (2"-4" deep) and runs it through a series of vibrating screen rollers to lay down a softer, more powdery snow surface. It is truly a new and better snow surface to enjoy at the resorts.

When will it be ready?

The second prototype will be built in 2019. A manufacturing partner will then be chosen to build the units. Look for the PowderMaker 2.0 surface at a resort near you for the 2020 ski season and beyond.

Daniel Osborne

Daniel grew up in Southern California and got hooked on snow skiing at Mammoth Mountain, Mt Baldy, Snow Valley and the other great local CA resorts. 

As a hard core skier for over 40 years, he knows snow and the wide variety of surfaces, textures and technologies related to his core passion SNOW. 

Dan's prior career was in the mortgage finance business where he originated over $200 million in prime residential mortgages and highly specialized fractional ownership mortgages for resort areas prior to the financial crisis in 2008. 

After a 10 year stint freelancing and consulting from Florida to ride out that global financial storm, he now gets to do what he loves, which is to bring great technology and new innovations to the snow business and now gets to ski for a living. 

Yes! He's living the dream...  and now anything it is possible.
