How does a snow cannon actually work?
Snow makers use the most modern technology nowadays. A computer programme calculates a figure, the so-called “wet-bulb temperature", from the weather data and temperature of the water.  The water temperature is a decisive value in the artificial snow system.

Via a complicated system of water pipes, the mountain water is brought to the approx. 150 spraying points next to the pistes.  To ensure the supply of water, special storage pools have been created in the last few years. The water is collected there in summer and is cleaned by special UV filters to create drinking water.

Every snow cannon is equipped with its own small weather station. If the weather is ideal for snow production, the snow makers are informed via mobile phone.  Each single snow cannon can now be activated by a click of the mouse. The water is sent at high pressure through the sprayers and lands as fine snow on the piste.

Every cannon can produce approx. 70 cubic meters of snow per hour. This snow lasts longer than natural snow. The snow cannons are a guarantee for environmentally-friendly and great skiing throughout the entire season! 

The snowmobile team promises:  we will make sure you have the best possible conditions on the pistes!
