Illumination systems for night skiing

Illumination is an important topic when it comes to safety in a ski resort, most of all when it comes to night skiing. The right quality and control of nightly illumination directly affects the consumer experience, and of course also the costs of your power consumption! Having a great illumination system will therefore not only keep your customers safe, but also contribute to their (and your) happiness.

Introduction Snow Grooming

Slope preparation is one of the most important aspects, when it comes to the satisfaction of skiers. Therefore it is very important to provide always a slope surface with the highest possible quality. But high quality does not always mean high costs! The groomer driver is the most important factor when it comes to a sustainable slope preparation. An excellent planning of the work and having well trained groomer drivers means lowering the variable costs and at the same time raising the slope quality!

Sustainable slope preparation

Sustainable slope preparation is the process that starts with the making of snow and analyses its preparation, daily care and the positive effect that the groomer driver and operations manager can have on the piste quality. The importance of piste quality must stand at the forefront as it is the business card of every ski area and the objective of every resort must be to offer perfect slopes whilst attaining a perfect cost/value and eventually sustainable ratio. We will focus on the requirements of the piste team, how modern technology is simplifying their tasks and what can be expected in the future in regards to slope preparation and resort management.
