On 12 February, the three companies hosted an event at the Bellamonte ski resort in Val di Fiemme. The resort is Italy’s first to be equipped with the latest comprehensive suite of fully automatic software solutions.
On show was LEITNER ropeways’ LeitControl system for simplified operation and management of ropeways. Capable of providing a simplified overview of complex work processes, the system actively prevents operating errors and enables controls via a single monitor. Moreover, the most important information on the general status of the system, wind conditions, speed, and braking functions can also be made available via an app for smartphones.
Prinoth’s software package SNOW HOW, designed with increased efficiency and resource conservation in mind, was also showcased. The presentation in Bellamonte focused on Leica Geosystems’ 3D snow-depth measurement, as well as fleet management software boasting real-time course tracking during slope grooming. The system displays relevant information, such as snow movements, vehicle course efficiency, fuel consumption, break times, and much more, directly on the screen.
Finally, attendees were able to learn more about Demaclenko’s Snowvisual 4.0 software, which can be operated via smartphone or tablet for fully automatic management and control of snowmaking systems. This advanced solution allows operators to optimise snowmaking windows and to use resources both efficiently and economically. Snowvisual instantly and automatically initiates the snowmaking system the moment operating conditions for snowmaking become ideal.
Luca Guadagnini, Chairman, said: “Technological innovations have always been first and foremost for our company and we have been exceptionally pleased by our choice of partners. As world market leaders combing quality and Italian design, the three companies deliver efficiency and environmentally friendly technologies that are extremely user-friendly. Incredibly, just a single contact person is needed for the administration of the ski resort's entire technical infrastructure.”
