Bansko: World cup host one more time!

The most famous ski resort in Bulgaria will host once again a FIS World Cup event from February 22nd to 24th. Since the 2007/2008 winter season, this will be the eighth time that Bansko welcome the best winter sports competitors, skiers or snow boarders, for a top international winter sport event. This is year the Bulgarian ski resort will host alpine disciplines: Super G, Alpine combined and Giant Slalom for men.

It is no coincidence if the International Ski Federation trusts Bansko to be a regular organizer of its World Cup events. The teams of the ski resort have always done a tremendous job for the preparation of the race slopes and always offers the perfect organization conditions for demanding athletes.

And as far as the snow guarantee is concerned, Bansko is a long-time customer of TechnoAlpin’s technologies and solutions; Indeed, the first snowmaking installation with TechnoAlpin dates back to the 2002/2003 winter season. With the help of its highly efficient snowmaking system, Bansko is assured to offer the best snow conditions and quality, both for regular winter sports lovers as well as for international ski racers!

Today, a fleet of approximately 400 snow guns - TF10, T40, M20 and M18 fans guns, as well as V3, V3ee, TL6 and Rubis Evo lances – is installed on the slopes of the ski resorts. This is a fully automatic system, controlled by TechnoAlpin’s ATASSplus software.

Regarding the fire power for the snow production: With a pumping capacity of 1200m3/h of water, the 70 ha of skiing terrain equipped with snow guns can be covered with snow in 70 hours! This significant pumping capacity allows to make the best of all the cold hours available and to optimize the snow production time.

As product partner of Bansko, specifically for the World Cup, TechnoAlpin is extremely proud to contribute to the successful organization of this event and more generally to help the ski resort to achieve a successful winter business, season after season.
