PRINOTH Snow Groomers, The Vehicle of choice for SKI Magazine’s Top Ten Ski Areas in North America for Grooming and Terrain Park Construction
GRANBY – October 2, 2014 – Results of SKI Magazine’s annual reader poll conclude that North American resorts using PRINOTH snow grooming equipment consistently rank as the top resorts in the country in grooming-related categories. In this year’s survey, resorts employing PRINOTH equipment completed the entire top 10 list of best terrain parks on the East Coast, and took eight of the 10 top places within the “best groomed resorts” category.
“PRINOTH is committed to providing the best in snow grooming equipment. These rankings demonstrate how using PRINOTH products can be a key differentiator for resorts interested in offering their guests a high quality grooming experience. No matter how big or small a resort is, skiers and snowboarders come for one reason – the snow. Our machines clearly offer a premium finish,” stated Dave Hunter, Director of Snow Grooming, PRINOTH North America.
Within the survey, readers were asked to evaluate resorts based on criteria established to judge grooming performance. The results voice the opinions of skiers and snowboarders related to the quality of grooming at the resorts they have visited, with Deer Valley, UT, Sun Valley, ID and Beaver Creek, CO representing the top three “best groomed resorts” in the West and Bretton Woods, NH, Okemo, VT and Sunday River, ME, all PRINOTH customers, taking top honors in the East.
Among resorts in the East, readers were also asked to rank the top 10 resorts based on “terrain park construction.” Resorts filling in the top three places include Seven Springs, PA, Mt. Snow, VT and Tremblant, Quebec. All three resorts use PRINOTH snow cats to build and maintain their parks.
PRINOTH continues to lead the industry in providing snow park specific machines, and recently announced it will continue its partnership with Snow Park Technologies (SPT), the world’s leading consulting team for special projects on snow. The collaboration aims to develop and deliver the ski and snowboard industry’s most innovative and efficient snow groomers.
“The PRINOTH BISON XPT is a critical tool in our line of work, giving our team and resort terrain park operators the ability to create some of the most inspired park designs and features that skiers and riders have ever seen,” said Chris “Gunny” Gunnarson, founder and president of SPT. “PRINOTH is the industry leader when it comes to snowcat machinery, and it’s great to see so many of their resort clients taking top honors as a result of the grooming capabilities these machines offer.”
Since the early sixties, PRINOTH has been at the forefront of building innovative and reliable snow grooming equipment, and has been consistently recognized as the Number One snow groomer in North America for the past 20 years. Whatever the conditions are, PRINOTH snow groomers transform the slopes to offer guests the ultimate ski and snowboard experience.
