The Jeongseon system features a fiber-optic backbone. This provides fast and reliable communications to each of the hardwired pods and portable radio snowguns to be interconnected in real time. There are a total of 100 fully automated Super PoleCat Snowmakers, mounted on towers and carriages, allowing snow production in all areas. 10 mobile Kid PoleCats are also available for portable use around the mountain.
