Timberline uses PistenBully SNOWsat, an innovative slope and fleet management system with snow depth measurement, which is based on satellite-guided positioning. SNOWsat reduces fuel consumption and downtime, while improving snow quality and increasing safety with lower environmental impact.

The analysis software being used with SNOWsat enables the slope and fleet managers to access diverse information and perform additional analysis processes. This results in diverse effects: optimized workflows and vehicle routes, for example, increase efficiency and also reduce fuel consumption. Vehicle data, snow depths, and snow conditions are displayed easily and clearly on a map of the whole ski resort.
Snow deposits can be identified and used at snow-poor locations to guarantee a full snow covering throughout the entire season. Timberline Lodge and Ski Area is then able to provide an extended ski season thanks to efficient use of snow resources.
