Snowvisual 4.0

Fully automated snowmaking from a completely new perspective


Having an overview of the entire snowmaking system at a single glance: this is what Snowvisual 4.0, DEMACLENKO’s fully automated operating software stands for. Thanks to continuous optimization, it is a unique tool for snow and slope management in winter resorts.

All the snowmaking system’s data and components are accessible via a single, intuitive platform, delivering detailed reports and statistics to optimize snowmaking processes. Other helpful functions such as snow depth measurement show precisely which sections of which slopes require further snow. The software guarantees maximum compatibility and bundles all elements which are relevant for snowmaking together in a single powerful and compact system.


 
 
Economical, sustainable and efficient use of resources

Digitalization has an enormous potential, particularly for ecological aspects of technical snowmaking. That is why DEMACLENKO is consistently working on improving the sustainability of its products and solutions. The resource management of Snowvisual 4.0, which is at the cutting edge of technology, plays a role by optimally regulating and monitoring the use of available raw materials. For instance, when managing water, the software monitors how much water is effectively available for snowmaking before it activates the snowmaking system. As a result, the capacity of the pumping station and the number of snow guns being used is automatically adapted in order to get the best possible results with maximal efficiency.


Further undreamt of prospects are being opened up by power management, which monitors the performance of the snowmaking system precisely. Measures for smoothing power consumption help to reduce short-term electricity peaks, thereby saving costs and energy. The development is even moving towards a power management system that covers entire areas, monitoring consumption on the mountain and regulating it through priority management. Here, customers benefit from the bundled capabilities of the LEITNER group, which also offers the latest generation in complete packages and cross-cutting solutions for ropeways and snow groomers that integrate the entire group.

Meteo-app: predicting and making optimal use of windows of opportunity for snow

The ability to plan snowmaking processes with precision is becoming increasingly important with forever shorter windows of opportunity for snowmaking. New standards are being set by the innovative Meteo-app by DEMACLENKO. Snow guns' records of present and historic temperatures and humidity are combined with general meteorological models. What is decisive is that the probability of the wet-bulb temperature for the following ten days appears, making it possible to determine the window of opportunity for snow with precision. This method factors in uncertainties in the general weather forecast, which is why it is the most reliable source on the market for planning snow.

SkiFlow: monitoring slope use in real time

Do you want to know how many people are on the slopes at any time of day? SkiFlow makes it possible. This system of sensors developed by DEMACLENKO, linked with Snowvisual and which can for instance be directly built into the snow gun or weather station, counts the visitors as they ski by and shows the slope use in real time. This leads to several advantages:
  1. Safety on the mountain: monitoring the use and overcapacity of the slopes as well as checking whether people are on the runs around the clock.
  2. Planning and optimizing slope grooming: Identifying the segments of the slopes that have been used the most in the course of the day at a glance
  3. Help in deciding where to invest: Determining the most popular slopes and optimizing your offer as a consequence
  4. Added value for visitors: Making use of the data on the outside to give visitors an overview of the slopes which are more or less frequented by way of an app
