Snow Measurement

Perfect management of snow by PRINOTH & Leica Geosystems

Manage Snow Simply. To the Nearest Centimeter

In cooperation with Leica Geosystems > PRINOTH offers a satellite-based system which makes it possible to get the most accurate measure and visualization of the snow depth. Based on Leica‘s renowned iCON Alpine System, the special software was adapted for the requirements of snow. A 3D model of the landscape without snow is the basis for the precise measurement of the snow depth, down to the nearest centimeter.

The System in Detail

An operator can see on a monitor installed in the snow groomer the exact depth of snow and the profile of the ground in real time. Therefore, during preparation, he can rely immediately on the data analyzed in real time from the GPS antennae and angle sensors. This means an optimization of snow management from production, to distribution, to preparation. PRINOTH’s Snow Measurement System can be used on slopes, parks and ski jumps. The system can be installed on any type of snow groomer, no matter what manufacturer.

3D Modelling for Park Construction

If the park/terrain is planned in 3-D, this data can be imported at little expense into the PRINOTH snow measurement system (not possible with other systems). The snow groomer operator then sees the 3D data directly on the display installed in the cabin. This saves time and money. It also guarantees precision and efficiency in the development phase and during daily maintenance.
