Over 1000 fan guns shipped so far in 2008!
As In 2007 our fan gun production is again over 1000 units for this season. This year fan gun number 1000 (an M18A mobile) was delivered to The Canyons Resort in Utah USA. This was not a surprise due to the success of TechnoAlpin North America since it was founded in 2002. The increased number of fully automated snowmaking systems installed by TechnoAlpin in North America is due to the demand for more energy efficient operation, lower manpower and better snow quality during marginal conditions. TechnoAlpin "SNOW EXPERTS" offers a wide range of different snow gun models, as well as optimal solutions for pump and compressor station control.
This year Nakiska Resort in the Canadian Rocky Mountains was the first to make snow on a large scale (see photo). Nakiska has become North America's preferred training facility for most of the World Cup teams preparing for the early races at Lake Louise later in November, sais Neil Jackson of Resorts of Canadian Rookies who is hosting more than 6,000 World Cup racers the next few weeks. The efficiency of the TechnoAlpin fan guns and the automatic pump stations has enabled the resort to guaranty excellent training condition earlier than any other resort in North America.
Many other TechnoAlpin resorts have also started snow production as of November 1st, among the "early birds" are; Snowshoe in West Virginia, Breckenridge Colorado, Yellowstone Club in Montana and Brianhead in Utah.
