Never snowed under.

Outstanding snow management
with PRINOTH’s Snow Depth Measurement.

In collaboration with Leica Geosystems, PRINOTH is offering Snow Depth Measurement, a satellite-based system which makes visualization and highly accurate measurement of snow depth possible.

Based on the tried-and-tested Leica iCON alpine system, the software has been specially adapted to meet requirements in the snow. This system uses a 3D model of the terrain without snow to provide the basis for accurately measuring snow depth.


The system in detail:

The driver is shown the exact snow depth and the terrain profile in real time on a monitor installed in the snow grooming vehicle. This means that during the preparation stage he can respond directly to the GPS-antenna and angle-sensor data which is evaluated in real time. Snow management is thus optimized from production to distribution and preparation.

Snow Depth Measurement can be used for slopes, parks and pipes as well as ski jumps. It is a satellite-based system which provides accurate measurement results. Reference data must be created in addition.

The Leica Ready Kit is pre-installed in the vehicles by PRINOTH at the factory. The system configuration and final commissioning at the customer’s premises is carried out by Leica Geosystems using the iCON alpine system.
