Sewage Water to Become Snow at Arizona Ski Resort
Sewage Water to Become Snow at Arizona Ski Resort: Flagstaff lies just outside the San Francisco Peaks, a wintery wonderland in the state of Arizona (in the winter that is), with elevations up to 12,000 ft. This is a prime location for skiing; Arizona Snowbowl, the ski resort of the area, has been taking skiers and snowboarders up their lifts for decades — it’s one of the country’s oldest continually running ski resorts. However, fluctuations in snowfall have made it difficult to maintain a consistent ski season, and Snowbowl has been considering taking matters into their own hands; if all goes according to plan, man-made snow will cover the mountain — completely made of treated sewage water.
