North Star Snowmaking Systems

North Star ice equipment has been installed at large ski resorts, theme parks and other attractions to create indoor and outdoor snow surfaces for skiing, snowboarding and other winter recreation. Produced by industrial flake ice makers, North Star snow can be used to create a realistic winter environment to enhance the visitors’ experience.


North Star flake ice equipment offers a distinct advantage over conventional snowmaking equipment because it makes snow at ambient temperatures above freezing. With North Star, recreation companies don’t have to wait for winter conditions to make snow as with conventional snowmaking equipment. North Star snow is also “sub-cooled” making it free flowing, so can be easily moved using mechanical or pneumatic systems, and it provides a natural skiing surface.
