Autumn skiing in Zermatt - thanks to artificial snow

Date Posted: 19th Oct 2007
Category:  Zermatt News
Those taking a ski holiday in Zermatt look to benefit from new mining technology that makes skiing at the resort possible as early as late autumn, it has been claimed.

According to a statement from Zermatt, the technique is used for cooling in the mining profession and in the tourist industry works to produce snow with a moderate energy consumption.

Christen Baumann, Chief Executive Officer of Zermatt Bergbahnen, revealed that the Vacuum Ice Machine works in the same manner as a freezer - but spraying snow over 40 cubic metres each hour, to the advantage of those on a ski holiday in Zermatt.

"We want to offer our guests perfect skiing enjoyment - so the innovation has come at just the right time," he added.

Meanwhile, other exciting new features ready to be experienced by those on ski holidays in Zermatt include three new ski lifts.

The two-seat chairlift on the Sunnegga paradise via Findeln to Breitboden route is being replaced with a four-seat chairlift which also boasts heated seats.
