We at Kässbohrer have always combined environmental aspects with economic advantages for the customer - namely from conviction. Profitability, energy efficiency, resource conservation and safety are the key factors in meaningful innovation. This approach has shaped our entire vehicle and product development, the technologies used and production processes, as well as our understanding of service, the availability of spare parts and training. We consider an integrated approach to be an investment that pays off for everyone. It is winter sport itself that reminds us of our duty. Climate change is forcing a change in thinking in favour of intelligent and sustainable solutions, because the snow lines are inevitably retreating ever higher. For many ski resorts man-made snow has already become indispensable. The water and energy requirement for snow production has become one of the biggest cost drivers in the ski resort. It is clear, however, that good concepts are having a positive impact on the environment in the short to medium-term and are creating clear cost advantages for the ski resorts. Superfluous snow production has been a thing of the past since the development of intelligent snow depth management for snow grooming. Ground damage has almost completely disappeared as a result as well. Other advantages come from the strategically optimized deployment of the entire grooming fleet in terms of grooming duration, fuel consumption, safety and measurability of performance. However, we also care deeply about encouraging young talent, developing and establishing new types of winter sports and the appeal of winter sports in itself. In this regard we are pulling together with customers, associations and government.
