Two PistenBully go for 4 weeks to Ruhpolding: The winners get a PistenBully free of charge for four weeks. In addition to valuable prizes for the winners, there was also an attractive prize for the ski companies thanks to the committed work of their staff at the AfterWork Party.
Alongside the latest models, as part of the 4th AfterWork Party Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG also presented a broad selection of older PistenBully, which were available for purchase with certified quality and skilled advice. Of the 75 used vehicles 14 PistenBully found a new home. The PistenBully Select offer is unique: almost new PistenBully 600 with certificates offer investment security at a comparatively reasonable price – including the full guarantee you get with a new vehicle plus a few extras.
Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG presented "Green IQ" PistenBully with economical engines and exhaust technology. Sustainable solutions for the future that consolidate the position of the global market and technology leader. One product under this strategy is the PistenBully 600 TwinPower – the first series production snow groomer with diesel/gas hybrid drive, which the guests were able to test out on the company's own "slope".
The SNOWsat presentation also attracted a lot of interest: satellite navigation system with snow depth measurement for economical snow management. Product Manager Danilo Gänsch talked about the system's possibilities, particularly the data exchange and coordinating the work of the entire vehicle fleet.
The Spare Parts department gave a presentation to customers on the seasonal wear and summer inspection parts covered by the current summer promotion. Naturally, the expert Kässbohrer service team were there again with some helpful tips and advice. Lots of visitors found out about Kässbohrer's online spare parts shop. The chance to visit the PistenBully production line once again proved to be popular with guests.
Visitors were also able to find out about PistenBully being used for special applications: lots of customers were especially interested in the PistenBully 300 GreenTech for silage work, but also in the PistenBully 100 All Season with front mulching attachment.
Naturally, the beach cleaning division also used the AfterWork-Party to present its BeachTech vehicles to a wide audience.
The 4th PistenBully Biathlon was definitely the sporting highlight of the day! As in previous years, cross-country and alpine ski resorts were judged separately to give everyone a sporting chance. 156 teams took part this year. The biathlon teams took each other on with lots of ambition and enthusiasm. All the participants pushed themselves beyond the pain barrier: from beginners to cross-country skiers to world-class performances. Everyone definitely had a lot of fun at the PistenBully Biathlon.
Over 1,000 international guests came from 22 countries. The Neuss ski venue and the Fritz Fischer and Salomon Biathlon Camp helped Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug once again with their usual professional manner.
The Gemeindewerke Ruhpolding from Germany took overall victory in the Alpine ski resort category. Last year's winner – Chiemgau Arena Ruhpolding from Germany – once again beat all the other cross-country ski resorts.
The diverse social programme with international artists and musicians guaranteed a great atmosphere. Revival 10 years on: Scottish Lonach Pipe-Band, who had played at the opening of the new factory and Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG's move to Laupheim, arrived once again for the anniversary. Many of the visitors remembered them well. An amusing evening event completed the AfterWork Party, which the thrilled guests are sure to remember for a long time thanks to top sporting performances and lots of fun.
