    Snow making machines use a lot of energy, and a lot fo water. For a every acre of snow, they use 220,000 gallons of water to make snow a foot deep. Several companies are now developing more energy efficent snow making machines.

    Yes, SMI Snowmakers reports that it takes 75,000 gallons of water to make a 6-inch covering of snow over an area of 200×200 feet.  In one minute, a ski resort with good snowmaking abilities can convert 5,000-10,000 gallons of water into snow per minute.  The pumps that run the snowmaker usually use diesel engines and require a lot of energy, thus create a lot of pollution, on a daily basis.
