It costs resorts hundreds of thousands, sometimes millions of dollars in materials (water, air, pipes) and time (employees, machinery) and National Geographic Channel goes behind-the-scenes with “Snow Park Technologies” to show how world-class, high-intensity snow competition courses are constructed.

Calvin Harris will be performing on Saturday, January 26th and Major Lazer on Sunday, January 27th (both at 4:15 PM at Buttermilk Mountain’s X Fest Stage).39.739-104.984
