Joe Barnes—Snowmaking. When Mother Nature drops the ball, Joe Barnes and the snowmaking team are the unsung heroes that perform magic with air, water and cold temperatures. Joe’s job is unique in the valley, he says, and it’s amazing to work at night (shifts last 12hrs), cruising up and down the mountain on the snowmobile maintaining the snow guns. When Joe isn’t working, he’s slashing the piles of snow he helped create the night before or out ski touring, putting in more than a hundred days a season on skis.
