TechnoAlpin has built the first snowmaking system in Pakistan, at the ski area of Naltar, almost 3000 m above sea level.

The ski resort is operated by the Ski Federation of Pakistan (SFP) with the aim of bringing skiing facilities nearer to the Pakistani population.

The SFP chose TechnoAlpin to install the system last year. In order to guarantee snow coverage in the ski resort, a new pumping station was built and almost 1 km of pipelines and steel power cables was laid. Four manual mobile MMS fan guns will provide optimum snow conditions in future.

Shahid Nadeem, Secretary General of the Winter Sports Federation of Pakistan, said: “There were no problems during the installation and start-up processes, mainly thanks to the TechnoAlpin staff who are very professional and work extremely efficiently. The snowmaking system itself is user-friendly and easy to operate and maintain. We had a very successful season and were able to run all the FIS races as planned. We are particularly pleased about this as we had to cancel some of the races last year. Thank you, TechnoAlpin!”
