Sierra Nevada has taken a new step in the renewal of its snow production system with the acquisition of 105 new state-of-the-art cannons , with which the Granada winter resort adds, in the space of 4 campaigns, the installation of 315 new units of high energy efficiency and great efficiency in the production of snow in marginal conditions.
The new cannons, 40 low pressure (TT10) and 65 high pressure (TL8), have begun to arrive in Sierra Nevada these days, from the Italian multinational Technoalpin, awarded the contract.
The Produced Snow department is going to distribute the 105 new units throughout the ski area , although the black slopes and the final section of the El Águila slope will be the areas that will be most reinforced. In the case of the black slopes, between Neveros and Fuente del Tesoro , 19 new cannons will be carried (10 TT10 and 9 TL8).
Río, Maribel, Trucha, Zorro, Granados, Peseta, Rebeco, Zahareña, Loma Dílar, Villén or the Mirlo Blanco activities complex will be other points where the new cannons will be installed for the 2022/23 winter season .
Simultaneously with the installation of the new cannons, the Produced Snow department will relocate 8 cannons with the idea of reinforcing certain routes in Borreguiles, Cauchiles and the entrance to the Laguna area.
With this new contingent, financed with FEDER React funds, earmarked for energy efficiency, Sierra Nevada closes the first comprehensive renovation cycle of the snow production system, with the almost complete replacement of old devices with new, state-of-the-art devices.
