Maximum skiing all sesaon...
A total of 239 snow-making machines complete the natural snow cover on the lower and most exposed parts of the ski area. Each night, making the most of the cold, the snow machines are in action spraying these areas before the piste grooming machines prepare and smooth this new layer of fresh snow.
Did you know that creating artificial snow is a precise art? The recipe for obtaining snow which is both cold and of good cohesion involves taking large quantity of water, compressing it by lowering the pressure, blowing cold air into it and mixing. This results in ideal snow, just a little heavier than natural snow. For an ideal quality the outside temperature needs to be minus 3 centigrade with 75% air humidity.
