Snow-making system in Lenzerheide
The Lenzerheide holiday region is already opening the cross-country and biathlon season at the end of October. Thanks to the investment in the snowfactory snowmaking system, which allows snowmaking even in warmer temperatures.
The so-called «Snowfactory» allows, in contrast to classic snowmakers, a production even at plus degrees. The principle of the Snowfactory is simple: with an advanced cooling technology, the water in a heat exchanger is cooled to freezing point. The water thus freezes due to the generated cold, without chemical additives. It does not produce snow in the true sense, but small dry ice sheets. By the subsequent machine track preparation the quality of firn snow is achieved. The system is thus ideal for smaller sections, but not for the area-wide snowmaking of entire ski resorts.
For around three weeks, the machines will be in permanent operation from the end of September. The trails will be prepared at the end of October, so that on 28 October, a 1.5 to 2.0 km long cross-country ski slope is available. The snow safety should not only extend the season, but also be a guarantee for the implementation of international events.
The project is financed by the municipalities Vaz / Obervaz and Lantsch / Lenz, the cross-country skiing region Lenzerheide and the Biathlon Arena Lenzerheide.
Biathlon Events in Lenzerheide
The Biathlon Arena Lenzerheide is the ideal location equipped with the infrastructure required to hold biathlon competitions at both a national and international level. The World Cup compliant fully automatic shooting range commands 30 stands with a 50 metre shooting range. During the winter, there are seven snow-covered cross-country skiing runs between 1.5 and 4 kilometres as well as a 150 metre long penalty loop available for use.
The newly formed association «Biathlon Events Lenzerheide» has applied to the IBU (International Biathlon Union) in order to hold international biathlon events. Already this winter a number of national and international events could be held in the Biathlon Arena Lenzerheide.
