Abstract (en)

[origin: WO03054460A1] The invention relates to a snow canon comprising at least one water/air nozzle (12, 12') for ejecting a water/air mixture (M). The inventive snow canon is developed in such a way that it comprises at least one jet pump (10, 10', 10'') which is operated by means of water (W) as a driving medium, and mixes the air (A) with the water (W) and compresses the air in order to form the water/air mixture (M) which is supplied to the at least one water/air nozzle (12, 12'). The invention also relates to a corresponding method for operating one such snow canon. The invention enables unused energy which is converted into heat in snow canons according to prior art, to be used in a particularly effective manner.
