Hello Pietro!
Yeah, I'm ready to go to the snow world, too. ahaha!
I'm gonna go to the ski resort next month.
I hope snow comes as soon as possible:)

That looks really small! Interesting, I've never seen one.

There is no problem if the snow fails this winter, that snowmaking machine is ready to make white blanket all around. Interesting device, indeed!

Hello Pietro !

The snow is arriving in a few days ???
SandyCarlson
Such a strange sight, Pietro! It's weird to know with the flick of a switch that mountain will be turned into a winter wonderland!
Joy
That's cool! You should take a photo of it when it's in action.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments. Have a fab autumnal weekend!

ciao Pietro buona domenica

Not yet!!!! Pietro! I'm not ready for that!

No snow! No snow! Sorry, last year here in the states we were bombarded with so much snow in the upper midwest(Iowa), I will gladly look at it in pictures, rather than my buried yard. We saw our first flakes yesterday...YUCK!

interesting article about the snow machine Pietro. Do you get to go skiing at all?

Pietro: I know what a snow cannon is a we have small ski slopes that are covered with snow as soon as it is cold enough to stay.
Naturegirl
I am sure the skiers cannot wait! You have some wonderful photography her!
I was in Italy this past summer!

Shalom. Your comment just now at Catherine's blog is so true. :)

I'm glad it led me to your nice blog!
You know, Israelis are selling snow to the Swiss --

winter is coming. although the philippines doesn't encounter snow, still we experience better climate during these coming months.
pierangela

un abbraccio pierangela

Adelynne
I've never seen either equipment before! Wow. :D

"Louis" noticed in your profile that you like Bach. There is a saying (attributed to the Swiss-German theologian Karl Barth):
"When God in heaven commands his angels to play music for him, they always play Bach, but when they play just for themselves, they play Mozart."

Wow! The snow cannon is huge!

Have a nice week ahead!

I had never seen a snow cannon before! It’s incredible to learn that it is possible to make snow enough to cover all that area with such a relatively small machine!
mirage2g
Huh...and we only want snow for skiing! lol. this is the first time I saw the cannon =)
angelgrotton
what a fun!

have a nice week-end my friend )
Marie Reed
What a wild snow cannon! I have never seen one either!
sonia a. mascaro
Thank you, Pietro, for sent me the link to that post. There is a cannon, but there is not snow... And I went again to the link about artificial snow.
Thanks again!
