Anchorage snowmaking system running at low capacity

ANCHORAGE (AP) — A long-awaited snowmaking system covering cross-country ski trails at Kincaid Park is now functioning, but at much less than its planned capacity.

The system only can support about one-third of its 17 snow guns at one time, according to Dick Mize, a board member of the nonprofit responsible for the project’s construction. And it’s still not ready to hand it off to the Nordic Skiing Association of Anchorage, which will ultimately maintain and operate the system.
