The Remarkables renew their trust in TechnoAlpin
During the expansion works of their ski resort, the Company NzSki, based in Queenstown, once again put its faith in TechnoAlpin snow-making systems.
The resort, which until the expansion work had 220 hectares of slopes, is equipped with runs suitable both for beginners and intermediate-level skiers. And not only skiing: The Remarkables is also a paradise for freestyle enthusiasts. Previously, there were 40 snow guns from the Alto Adige company covering the resort's slopes. In view of the installation works for the new ski lift, the operators decided to install technical snow guns along the newly created slopes, with a total length of 1,600 m.
Along the new slopes, 38 Rubis Evolution lances will be installed - the first time that a lance of this type will be used in New Zealand. This type of lance makes it possible to obtain excellent performance under various weather conditions, even with marginal temperatures. Furthermore, thanks to moderate air consumption (25 Nm³/h – average), the Rubis Evo guarantees low energy usage. In addition to the Rubis Evo lances, 8 new TF10 fan guns will generate snow on the new slopes at The Remarkables. Besides the power of the machine at marginal temperatures, its efficiency during snow-making, and its lower sound frequency, the TF10 also has an incredible range, capable of covering a huge area. This allows guaranteed consistency in the quality of snow over the entire area.
Furthermore, in order to ensure a reliable supply of water to the guns placed along the slopes, 3 additional pumping rooms will be built.
Thanks to collaboration with TechnoAlpin, The Remarkables resort will be able to provide their guests with perfectly snow-covered slopes right from opening.
