Lake Mountain Alpine Resort in Australia is the ski resort which can be reached most quickly from the city of Melbourne. It has been working for many years with TechnoAlpin which is at the leading edge of innovation in the snowmaking market and once again sustained impressive results in 2019.
Lake Mountain Alpine Resort is a very popular winter destination for many families with its toboggan runs and cross-country ski trails. The ski resort has relied exclusively on TechnoAlpin technology for snow coverage since 2019 and can therefore guarantee its customers top snow quality throughout the entire season. The snow is provided by TF10 and T40 snow producers and since 2019 also by a Snowfactory SF210.
The use of the Snowfactory spells a major change in snowmaking at Lake Mountain. It means guaranteed snow coverage, especially at the beginning of the season when ski resorts have to work in difficult weather conditions. The Snowfactory enables snow to be produced even at mild temperatures and this means an extended season – with an earlier opening and a later closure of the resort. It is especially beneficial for the cross-country ski runs, allowing them to be prepared early and greet the numerous visitors with optimum snow quality.
A new pumping station was installed in the ski resort in 2019 and the entire system was integrated in the ATASSplus control system. The software now enables simple and precise control across the entire ski resort. Three water tanks which are used for the drinking water supply are also monitored by ATASSplus. It is therefore possible to control the entire facility with one single system.
Six TechnoAlpin employees were there to install the system in order to guarantee that things were up and running quickly and without any problems. Technician and programmers, working on the installation of both the pumping station and the Snowfactory, put the entire system into operation in record time. Extensive tests were conducted on function and snow quality to ensure that nothing would stand in the way of a successful start to the winter season.
