Pioneering technology for the Alta Pusteria

The Three Peaks Dolomites family ski resort in the Upper Puster Valley in South Tyrol (Italy) connects a total of five mountains and over 110 kilometers of ski slopes. To open the large number of slopes in good time and provide numerous guests with fantastic skiing, in the summer the ski resort opted for technology from leading innovator TechnoAlpin.

This enabled the Three Peaks Dolomites winter sports destination to start the ski season much earlier this year than other ski resorts in the Dolomites. The first slopes were opened on the Kreuzberg Pass on November 22, despite warm temperatures in November. This meant winter sports enthusiasts were able to have fun on the snow very early on. The Signaue slope and the new Signaue II slope were opened two days later. Thanks to TechnoAlpin’s groundbreaking technology, the link from Vierschach to Bad Moos and back could also be opened much earlier than ever.

All this was made possible by TechnoAlpin’s ultra-modern, advanced snowmaking system.

Italy's most powerful snowmaking system

The project included constructing a new reservoir with a 95,000 m³ capacity. A total of 87 new T40 and TF10 fan guns were installed, along with 12 new TL6 snow lances. A new pumping station with a total of nine pumps was also built, and this can be extended by three more pumps in the near future. The new pumping station is intended to reduce snowmaking time to a record-breaking 40 hours. In the future, the new pumping station should also be able to supply the connecting slope to Sillian. The planned expansion will transform the ski resort into a Dolomiti Superski region, extending beyond Italian borders to connect two countries and three regions.

A special feature of the project: the pumping station has stainless steel water pipes, a complete novelty in the Italian ski region. The pumping station is the heart of a snowmaking system, which is why the material for the pipes is extremely important. Stainless steel pipes are corrosion-free and particularly durable.

This is the most powerful snowmaking system in Italy.
