Strong 2019 ski Season

PowderMaker 2.0


What does it do?

Unlike power tillers, that use hydraulics and horsepower to beat the snow into submission and lay down the all too 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 snow resorts.

When will it be ready?

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

Snow Mapping

Accurate + affordable snow depth monitoring


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

You could make less snow, move less snow and best of all 

provide a better experience for your guests. 

More importantly the right snow mapping technology will save you money.

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

Ground based systems ping through the snow to provide snow depth accuracy of 2-4 inches. They are less expensive than Satellite (Sat) based systems, but are also much less reliable in wet or Spring-like conditions. Sat based systems are superior in many ways for building  terrain features and are more accurate to, but they also cost more to purchase and maintain.

We have found the most affordable and reliable Sat based system available on the market and plan to start delivering it to major ski resorts in Jan 2019. Stay tuned!

Major Resorts Currently Utilizing Snow Mapping Technology:

Steamboat, Snowmass, Telluride & Vail in Colorado

Deer Valley, Park City, PowMow and more in Utah 

Mammoth, Snow Summit and others in CA.

Jackson Hole in Wyoming + a few ski areas back East.

Many more resorts coming online in 2019

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

Daniel Osborne

Daniel grew up in Southern California and got hooked on snow skiing at Mammoth Mountain, Heavenly, 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 in key resort areas prior to the financial crisis in 2008. 

After a 10 year stint freelancing and consulting from Florida to a wide range of businesses and 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 also gets to ski quite often for a living. 

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