In the Snow
Tasks that become apparent to the ski patrol or the slope
manager during the day are noted, scheduled and entered
as a job using SNOWsat ToDo. Nothing is forgotten, everything
is completed promptly and everyone in the team
knows about it.
There is always something to do
A storm has knocked down some fences. The crest of the
slope below the summit is very icy. And while traveling on
the chairlift, the slope manager noticed a skier bypassing a
sign at the edge of the slope. No problem, the manager pulls
out their smartphone and adds this task, just like all the other
little jobs that need to be resolved in the course of the day.
If applicable, they can also note who and when, and mark
the location – for example: a ski instructor just informed the
snow manager that the protective mat at snow gun number
76 that has slipped out of place.
The tasks transfer automatically from the server to the vehicle
the next time the PistenBully is started or the next time it enters
the WiFi zone. Drivers can now complete tasks promptly.
No more scraps of paper, no “there was something else...,” all
tasks are visible in every vehicle – including the current status.
This is especially helpful for two-shift operations. There
is no need for a time-consuming handover. The second driver
immediately knows the tasks that have been assigned to the
PistenBully and whether they have been completed already
or are still outstanding. As soon as the icy patch below the
summit has been recovered with fresh snow, the task gets
ticked off. The snow manager sees in the office that this danger
has been averted.
All around communication
SNOWsat ToDo is a simple tool with a big impact for everyone.
Everyone knows. Everyone is on the same page. Every
driver knows the specific tasks that relate to them thanks to
a personalised login.
Standard tasks are added in typical weather conditions. Of
course, everyone knows what needs to be done after heavy
snowfall, but now the jobs are displayed for everyone and
nothing is left out – especially when things are chaotic.
SNOWsat ToDo simplifies and improves communication
in the ski resort. Better understanding leads to better planning,
which plays a major role in creating greater efficiency
and perfect slopes.
