[ Context and initial need ]

The lack of anticipation in machine-made snow production can have negative consequences, both in economic and ecological terms, not to mention the quality of snow on the slopes and the satisfaction of skiers.

[ Main goal ]

PROSNOW - PROSNOW Project : enabling ski resorts to optimize snow management.

The PROSNOW project (funded by the Europen Commission – H2020) aims at developing a decision making service for ski resorts, based both on meteorological (several days) and seasonal (several months) forecasts.

[ Applications and potential uses in the mountains ]

This new tool will provide forecasting information that can be used by ski area operators (eg snow depths / heights), together with precise information on the uncertainties affecting them.
