Since 1996, Chamonix has trusted MND to assist it with its snowmaking needs.
In the mythical resort of Grands-Montets, the water captured comes from the melting glaciers of the Mont-Blanc massif and is highly loaded with minerals, which creates premature wear and tear on the snowmaking equipment. A water treatment solution has been found to increase their lifespan and guarantee better durability.
snow guns: the lower part of the network is equipped with more than 50 TAURUS 2.0 poles which benefit from high water pressure. The upper part is equipped with PEAK fans.
the machine rooms: in the main pumping room, in addition to the traditional filtration, 5 cyclonic filters are installed, the only technology allowing the elimination of the finest particles.
