Levi Black is back
After a year away from the Alpine Ski World Cup circuit due to high temperatures, this weekend male and female slalom skiers are back on Levi Black, where the second round of the 2012/2013 Alpine Ski World Cup competition will be held.
Levi is one of the largest skiing areas in northern Finland, located in the Municipality of Kittilä in Lapponia and it boasts an impressive 43 km of slopes. It is the northernmost area where competitions are held on the World Cup circuit, of which it has been part since 2004.
And here too, TechnoAlpin snow guns guarantee the organizers, athletes and spectators excellent slope conditions, covering the slopes where the competition will take place. TechnoAlpin has supplied Levi with automatic snow-making systems since 2005 and since then many improvements have been made to the system itself.
Levi Black has "beautified itself" over the past few weeks in view of the big event: In fact, since mid-October, temperatures have dropped to a few degrees below freezing, allowing the organizers to activate the TechnoAlpin snow guns.
123 snow guns covered the slopes with snow which were then impeccably prepared by technicians. The guns included 7 T60 units and 1 M18 mobile unit. There are also 12 M18 units and 1 T60 installed on towers as well as 2 M18 arm mounted units. Levi also uses the new TechnoAlpin snow gun, the TF10: in fact, 8 units were supplied on towers.
Along the slope 132 pits were installed. Whilst there are 7 pumping plants in the area, with an overall power of 1,500m³/h – definitely one of the most powerful anywhere in Finland.
The entire TechnoAlpin wishes the organizers and athletes the best of luck for a successful event!
