They are the heroes of the night – real lads, who love their job
The 10 PistenBully snow groomers boast up to 500 hp under the hood. Their drivers plan for eight hours a day – usually at dusk or under a starry sky. The skills of the PistenBully driver are crucial to ensure the ski slopes are presented as soft powdery carpets the next morning. Not only do they know the weather forecasts and terrain in detail, the PistenBullies are swiftly on hand to smooth things out again if necessary. But it is when they are working on particularly steep slopes, their heavy equipment hanging from a rope winch – this is when they remember who they really are: the heroes of the night!
