The I AM a Snowmaker contest highlights the hard work, determination and camaraderie of snowmakers, and recognizes their critical contributions to the alpine, Nordic, snowboard, and winter tubing industry. Eight teams have  been chosen for this season's I AM a Snowmaker contest. This year’s competing teams were challenged to produce a “day in the life" video that captures the heart and soul of their snowmaking team. They showcase how snowmakers' contributions result in personal development and the overall success of the mountain.
