An intuition for snow can be learned.

We started the PRINOTH Academy to be able to provide snow groomer technicians and operators the two most important tools they need: knowledge and skills. This is because these tools are the basis for perfectly prepared pistes, parks and trails. Our training pogram is designed to demonstrate how it possible to obtain the best results from the piste groomers, by minimizing time and resource requirements. Even the best machine cannot reach its maximum performance potential if it is not in professionally trained hands.


Courses that motivate, practical content, first-class trainers: There are many good reasons to use the PRINOTH Academy as a springboard towards a stellar career as a technician or operator. And four unique reasons why professional operators and technicians choose the PRINOTH Academy:
