New snow-making reservoir on Katschberg
The new snowmaking reservoir at Aineck will have a storage capacity of 165,000 m3, which is the equivalent of 36,000 tanker loads. The reservoir is intended to ensure snow certainty for the ski resort on the Carinthia/Salzburg border and will be built during the summer. The reservoir at Aineck, situated at 2,200 m above sea level, will provide a welcomed benefit: during the artificial snowmaking process the inherent pressure of the water is used to transport it to the snow canons, which saves up to 20% energy.
Investment for the future. The new reservoir ensures the basic snow requirements on both the Katschberg and Aineck slopes and is the fifth reservoir in ski area. In the course of construction, a new pump station will be constructed so that the snow can be produced faster and thus more efficient. The Katschberg slopes are known to have a one hundred per cent snow certainty as 700 snow lances and cannons provide snow for the entire ski area. A total of 3 million euro will be invested in Katschberg this summer by the Bogensperger family.
Test winner Ski Resort Test 2012/2013. The ski resort of Katschberg was awarded 5 out of 5 stars, excellent, in a ski resort test conducted by the website skiresort.de, thus demonstrating leadership in the category of snow certainty.
