Fieberbrunn to invest 7million Euros in snow making technology

In 2018, the Fieberbrunn lift company will expand the capacity of the Streuböden-Alm reservoir ten fold to enhance the early season snow making operations.

From Spring 2018, the reservoir will extended to capture more melt water than ever before and provide a more efficient and greener solution to snow-making in the run-up to Christmas.

The plan involves being able to store melt water in the reservoir at a rate of 60 litres per second and then recycle it for snow-making via higher capacity pipes and 35 propeller snow-makers which will result in the entire ski area being covered and ready for skiing in 1 week.
