With its years of experience and ongoing development work with material and applications, Neveplast is able to design and implement turnkey installations for all ski resorts. Due to the excellent slide characteristics of its product, the company is able to respond to the specific needs of winter resorts worldwide.
This year Neveplast was involved in the FIS World Speed Skiing Championships in Verbier, Switzerland, and in Andorra. The FIS organization chose Neveplast to help increase the starting speed by installing Neveplast NP30 on a 30-meter long and 15-meter high ramp in the starting area, which is located at 3,000 meters above sea-level. With the help of the launch from the ramp, skiers achieved the highest speeds ever recorded for such an event. The satisfaction expressed by both athletes and organizers is proof of the excellent compatibility between Neveplast and the snow.
The product offers outstanding versatility, is easy to install and is durable at all temperatures. Neveplast is also an excellent solution for crossing roads in low-traffic mountain areas, thus solving the costly problem of continuously covering the crossing track with snow.
Neveplast materials do not melt and they do not have to be groomed or relocated. Once placed on the ground, they have the same function as real snow but without the expense of maintenance. With a choice of versions for different applications, it is possible to create downhill skiing trails, cross-country skiing tracks or snow tubing lanes. The product is also used for the loading/unloading areas of chairlifts and surface lifts. Areas which are problematical with regard to artificial or natural snow cover are always a burden for management. In such cases the company recommends installation of its products in good time before the start of the season; Neveplast acts as a thermal insulator between the ground and the snow for more durable snow cover.
Neveplast has committed considerable resources to the development of advanced materials and products and over the years has been able to diversify its product portfolio to include custom engineered applications for both summer and winter facilities including fun parks. In mountainous areas, Tubby and Skiddy are extremely popular. Tubby was first used for snow tubing. Snow tubing lanes can be installed and combined with a carpet lift for an all-season attraction. With a selection of accessories such as starting ramps and parabolic turns, resorts can create their own unique venues. More than a thousand facilities have been installed worldwide in just five years.
Skiddy tracks are ideal for ice karting, with all the fun of sideways drifts as on a real ice kart circuit. With low operating costs and minimum maintenance, Skiddy is attracting significant interest from resorts looking for a new attraction for their year-round entertainment offerings.
