Sustainable quality snow
An army of 1,500 snowmakers & groomers is ready for action at sunset, just as the last chairlift comes to a halt
Modern and fast chairlifts, next generation snow cannons with greater performance and powered by renewable energy, immaculate pistes perfectly groomed by the snowcats and a team of 1,500 workers ready to jump into action as soon as the sun sets and the last chairlift has come to a halt. Quality snow and the proof is under your feet, perfectly prepared pistes constantly groomed in harmony with the landscape.
Aboard the powerful snowcats the groomers smooth the slopes with the machine’s front-mounted blade lowered to remove the build up of snow left by the skiers. It is then pushed through the tiller to the rear of the snowcat which first churns the snow, then compacts it. It’s a daily maintenance of all slopes that carries on well into the night: this is the key to the quality of snow in Trentino. In all Trentino ski areas skiers can rely on a network of the most modern snow systems in the Alps. Gondola lifts of 8 to 16-person capacity with automatic detachment, 4-seater & 6-seater chairlifts and ultra-modern cable cars are today the backbone of the most famous ski areas.
In terms of cost saving and sustainability, the ski area of San Martino di Castrozza is a perfect example, where all lift systems are powered by clean energy, produced by seven hydro-electric stations reducing CO2 emissions considerably.
This winter season many ski areas have invested heavily again to improve the programmed snow-making system to guarantee 90% coverage of all pistes, creating new water reservoirs and introducing energy efficient generators.
New for the 2017/18 season
HI-TECH SNOW AND NEXT GENERATION CABLE CARS
In addition to Funifor Alba - Col dei Rossi lift system, a new technological jewel will be operational for next skiing season in Val di Fassa, one of the most modern in the Alps. In Alba di Canazei, the first in Italy “Doppelmayr D-Line” cable car will be making its maiden voyage this winter, marking a new era in the world of lift systems. With 205 new developments, 31 innovations and 14 patents the Doppelmayr D-Line” sets the benchmark for high-tech transport focused on passenger comfort and quiet operation.
Skiarea del Ciampàc
In the Skiarea del Ciampac the chairlifts of Sella Brunech and Roseal will be upgraded to improve the service and the facilities. In the Skiarea del Champedie the Vajolet 1&2 chairlifts are undergoing improvements for a faster connection from Pera di Fassa thanks to two 4-seater lift systems with automatic detachment for easy access also to non- skiers.
Val di Sole
This coming winter in Folgarida - Marilleva in Val di Sole the new and innovative 4-seater with automatic detachment Malghette chairlift will provide a more comfortable and faster access to Monte Vigo, a beautiful panoramic spot at an altitude of 2,179m, from which you can also enjoy the restyled red run Malghette, connecting, through the link “skis-on”, Folgarida -Marilleva with Madonna di Campiglio & Pinzolo.
