Climate Studies and Simulations

Climate is a primary consideration for resort development and operation.
Snow Plan studies the climatic conditions within the development area with the aid of a recently developed computer programme as they affect ski and base area development. See the SnowPlan section for more information.

Snowmaking system planning with SnowPlan™

SnowPlan is a computer programme which simulates the effects of a planned snowmaking system on the snow cover of trails and on the business figures of the ski area.

On the basis of weather records of the respective area, the snowmaking system design and several other important parameters, SnowPlan calculates the daily snow cover for every regarded trail and especially takes into account the snowmelt. This serves as a base for the calculation of operational costs, possible skier numbers and revenues. SnowPlan was developed in cooperation with the SLF - Swiss Institute for Snow and Avalance Research, Davos, and Techno Alpin - the world market leader in the the snowmaking business.
