Learn About the Teams



We are the snowmaking team at Aspen Snowmass. There are 30 snowmakers on our team. The perfect forecast for making snow is clear, cold, calm and a full moon. We have over 100 years of combined snowmaking experience. If you opened the break room fridge, you would see salmonella on sticky condiment bottles. The motto of our snowmaking team is, “We’ve upped our standard, up yours.” If snowmaking was a professional sport, our team name would be "Gunrunners." The percentage of crew who ski or ride is 100%. If we threw a snowmaker’s party, wild game would be on the dinner menu. The 5 key items we always bring on a gun run are: ATD (attention to detail), extra hose, shovel, tow strap and grit. Our crews keep coming back year after year to make snow because of the community and camaraderie.
