The Italian ski resort of Cervinia is now able to produce a much greater quantity of snow, following the latest advance in its multi-year snowmaking modernisation project in collaboration with TechnoAlpin.

TechnoAlpin helps Cervinia to produce five times more snow

TechnoAlpin has been working closely with Cervinia since 2015 to engineer an entire snowmaking system. In three years of construction, the Italian company has been able to significantly boost the output of the snowmaking system. In 2015, snow production capacity was 1500 m³ per hour; now Cervinia is able to produce five times the amount of snow per hour.

After extensive research into the required amount of water, TechnoAlpin developed a water management system in collaboration with Cervinia. The fully automatic ATASSplus control system installed is intended to ensure sustainability in terms of optimising resource efficiency.

Consequently, Cervinia is now able to provide three downhill runs with snowmaking coverage ahead of the 2018 – 2019 winter season.
