Partnership between Saalbach Hinterglemm and TechnoAlpin continues
The Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Resort (Austria) offers ski lovers almost 200 km of slopes. Ongoing investments are required to guarantee the operation of systems in such a vast area. During the last 15 years, the investments made by the three companies that form this ski resort (Saalbacher Bergbahnen GmbH, Hinterglemmer Bergbahnen GmbH and BBSH Bergbahnen Saalbach Hinterglemm GmbH) reached Euro 300 million. The company's objective is to constantly maintain state-of-the-art infrastructure and to be able to ensure a reliable guarantee of snow for all visitors. The partnership with TechnoAlpin has been going on for many years now. The first guns from the snow experts were delivered to Saalbach Hinterglemm back in 1992. Since then, all the local companies rely on TechnoAlpin when it comes to guaranteeing snow cover.
This summer there was a great deal of activity in six different areas of the resort: Zwölferkogel, Reiterkogel, Westgipfel, Schönleiten, Kohlmais, Reiterkogel Ost and Jausern. 52x TF10s (lift and tower mounted), 20x T40s (lift and tower mounted) and 3x V3 lances were installed. But that's not all: TechnoAlpin also buried 75 reinforced pits for lifts and fitted aluminum data cables. During the summer, construction was also started on the new "Polten" reservoir, which is intended to optimize the system's water supply. The project also included the replacement of the current 4-seat chair lift with a new, modern 8-seat chair lift, the "Polten".
The slopes of the Saalbach report are currently snow-covered by around 700 guns, with about 100 snow-making technicians working on them. This makes Saalbach one of the customers with the most TechnoAlpin snow guns. The Saalbach slopes will also play a key role next February 21-22 when the Super G and Men's Downhill races will be held there.
Not long ago, TechnoAlpin was proud to welcome a delegation of managers of the various companies that make up the resort at its Bolzano headquarters. In addition to visiting production areas, the well-stocked warehouse and the offices, the customers had the opportunity to enjoy some local attractions around Bolzano.
