They started with SNOWsat in Åre last year: all 10 of the ski resort's snow groomers were equipped with SNOWsat - 2 of them with the snow depth measurement system, the remaining PistenBully with fleet management. Based on its good experiences in Åre, Swedish operator SkiStar AB has now decided to install SNOWsat in another of the company's resorts, Trysil in Norway.
After one year of running SNOWsat in Åre, Skistar AB has now decided to expand the fleet of snow groomers with another three units of snow depth measurement equipment. During last winter season the resort quickly realised the magnitude of potential savings SNOWsat brings in a ski resort with more than 40 lift facilities and over 100 cross-country ski trails. The entire fleet is networked, facilitating a complete picture and comprehensive coordination of the resort and its snow resources.
SNOWsat on its way from Sweden to Norway
In addition to Åre, SkiStar AB operates 5 more ski resorts in Scandinavia, and one resort in Austria, making it one of Europe's most important resort operators. A proven asset in Sweden's biggest ski resort has to be good in Norway too: that's why SNOWsat is now also being installed on a big scale in Trysil. For the coming season, all vehicles will be running SNOWsat fleet management in Norway's biggest ski resort, and 3 of them will also be fitted with snow depth measurement. With 75 kilometres of slopes, it's an investment that will pay off.
