Boyne Low-E Fan Guns
This winter, Boyne Highlands Resort in Harbor Springs is rolling out a significant enhancement to the proprietary Boyne Low-E fan guns that makes the fleet the most energy efficient marginal temperature snowmaking system in the world. This breakthrough in technology slashes energy usage by over 50% from already industry leading levels. The energy savings during a normal snowmaking session would be the equivalent of powering 30,000 100-watt lightbulbs. The resorts first began testing the new nozzle prototypes in 2015 on two of the resorts’ most popular runs to confirm the energy savings and quality improvements. For the 2017/18 season, the resorts have fully implemented the design enhancement on more than 460 snow guns.
The composition of the proprietary Boyne Low-E fan gun was created by Boyne Resorts’ Michigan based team in conjunction with the world’s leading snow gun manufacturer, SMI of Midland, Michigan.
