Whistler Blackcomb snowmaking team competing for I Am a Snowmaker Award

The HKD I Am a Snowmaker Award gives props to six standout snowmaking crews from mountain resorts across North America. Each of the six nominated crews was tasked with making a video that highlights why their crew is second only to Mother Nature.
