Yes yes, we all know our Team USA is winning golds at the Olympics, but there’s another Team USA that you see in nearly every competition, with every athlete, and nobody is giving them credit.
The snow. Yep, the snow, or rather about 98% of it, is USA-made. “Now, how can that be?”, you ask. Well, there’s fake snow being used in a number of the events in PyeongChang for the 2018 Winter Olympics, and it comes from a company in Michigan. The company is called Snow Makers Inc., and they’re the creators of the snow at the Jeongseon Alpine Center, which is the location of the downhill events.
To get specific, the events using the snow are:
Women’s Slalom Run
Men and Women’s Super-G
Men’s Giant Slalom
Alpine Team Event
