Snow net? Not necessary!

Costs of TexSnow are comparative with those of previous systems.
The saving of up to 90% water during operation keeps running costs low.


Time saving of up to 70%

It does not get any faster – build in one day

Together with the helpers, the ALPINA professionals equip the facility in Steinbach-Hallenberg (D). Inrun track and landing hill are equipped with the new TexSnow.

Equipment of the test facility in Velden (A)

The three ski jumping hills in Velden (A) with 7, 12 and 30 meters have been equipped with TexSnow within one day.

Installation is fast and low cost

TexSnow was developed by ALPINA Sicherheitssysteme GmbH, in constant contact and close cooperation with the International Ski Federation FIS.

The ALPINA department „Innovative Solutions for Ski Jumping“ has been extremely successful with the use of wind nets since 2009.

Safety? Top priority!

When accidentally sliding on TexSnow, there is no frictional heat due to the well-thought-out material properties. The structure allows high directional stability.

The optional impact absorbers from ALPINA also offer the best protection when needed.

That is safety in best Austrian quality!

REVOLUTIONARY MATERIAL

The innovative combination of fibers made of polycarbonate and polyamide has been perfected over two years of development and now has optimal properties – only snow is more genuine. Tracking, friction and grip are very realistic. The test jumpers report a near-natural inrun and landing feeling.

LIKE ON RAILS

TexSnow is used in the inrun track –  with guide rails, as on large ski jumping facilities. This makes training under competition conditions possible.

FOR THE SMALLER JUMPS

A track without guide rails lowers the inhibition threshold. The inrun is defined by the material color. Young and junior athletes, or even schoolchildren, can try a trial jump in any season, even with normal skis.

EXISTING FACILITY?

With TexSnow every ski jump facility can be retrofitted. The existing material structure serves as a base. A disassembly is not necessary, the total cost of the conversion is therefore relatively low.
