Pistenbully

The largest grooming fleet on the north shore!

Grooming 600 acres of trails nightly not only requires a great grooming team but also top-notch equipment. Our grooming Fleet Consists of seven Pistenbully Snow Cats. Of those seven, two are PB400’s. One of them grooms the trails in our Nordic area and has track setters on the tiller for Classic Cross Country Skiing. The other one is a Park Pro that has many special features for grooming Terrain Parks.

The other five are PB600’s, which are the largest cat Pisten Bully make. Two of our 600’s are Polar versions which means they boast another 100 HP for a total of 500 HP. Within that mix, we also have two winch cats for grooming steeper runs. The PB600 Winch Cats have a kilometer of cable onboard for grooming longer runs.

SNOWsat

SNOWsat is a professional slope and fleet management system with snow depth measurement, which is based on satellite-guided positioning. The current position of the snow groomer is continually plotted to an accuracy of a few centimeters. Precise positioning is essential for high-accuracy snow depth measurement. The SNOWsat base station calculates these figures using GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO satellite signals. In the snow groomer the GNSS receiver and the on-board computer continually calculate position, snow depth and other vehicle data, record it and present it on the touchscreen in the driver‘s cab. When the vehicle is within range of a SNOWsat WiFi access point the data is automatically transmitted to the SNOWsat server and stored there.

The analysis software being used with SNOWsat enables the slope and fleet managers to access diverse information and perform additional analysis processes. This results in diverse effects: optimized workflows and vehicle routes, for example, increase efficiency and also reduce fuel consumption. Vehicle data and snow depths are displayed easily and clearly on a map of the ski resort.
