Snow even at temperatures above freezing
The Snowfactory is an innovative snowmaking technology that can produce snow regardless of air temperatures.
Cross-country ski tracks need to be prepared on time for the start of the season to cater to the increasing numbers of winter sports enthusiasts. In this case, the use of the SnowFactory can be decisive. It guarantees the snow volumes required for the high-quality preparation of the tracks, and can ensure they are opened punctually for the start of the season, or even earlier if required. Snow reliability is particularly important for the venues of international competitions. Biathlon arenas and Nordic competition centers are usually located at lower altitudes than alpine skiing areas. The snow windows are therefore even shorter at these locations, and the use of the SnowFactory all the more important.
To ensure that the FIS Cross-Country World Cup in Dresden (Germany) can be held as planned, the organizers have two mobile SnowFactory SF100 units at hand. The snowmaking machines were made available to the organizers by the German Ski Association (DSV) and do not require any complex construction work or installations. All they need to manufacture snow is a simple connection to power and water supplies. The necessary snow is generated by the Snowfactories at Dresden Airport from where it is transported to the competition site.
