  • Description

    Man-made snow is the latest idea by the ingenious French to beat the shortcomings of the climate at their top skiing resorts. At Flaine, in the shadow of Mont Blanc, Europe's first artificial snow-making system went into action this week.

    The "snow-cannon" -- a variation on the water-cannon -- bombards the ski-slopes overnight with a mixture of water and compressed air. The result was a surface good enough to be used by members of the French National ski team during practice this week.
