Snowmaking is becoming an increasingly necessary adaptation strategy for many ski resorts. Even those that have historically relied mainly on natural snow are seeing the benefit of some snowmaking in snow-lean winters. As global warming accelerates, snowmaking will become ubiquitous. Once again in an effort to increase the utility, researchers developed SKITool to allow ski operators the opportunity to explore the impacts on various ski factors from different snowmaking philosophies and technologies.
