Snowmaking Weather Chart

In order to make snow, you need the correct wet bulb temperature. Wet bulb temperature is directly related to both relative humidity and outside temperature. This chart shows the wet bulb temperature at a given temperature, and relative humidity. The lower the wet bulb temperature, the higher quality of snow you will produce. If the wet bulb temperature is located in the light green area labeled “Marginal Snowmaking” then the snow will be more dense and heavy than if the conditions are in the “Ideal Snowmaking” area. 

We recommend checking the weather on a local weather station or thermometer close to your home. This will be the most accurate reading of temperature and humidity.
