Case of Success

Valdelinares ski resort


High pressure pumping

Artificial innivation



Teruel, España.

The Valdelinares ski resort was being expanded, creating new tracks and needing to expand its artificial wintering network. The project contemplated pumping 20 liters per second (expandable to 40 liters per second) to an existing pond located at 1986 meters, from a catchment point located at 1587 meters. The route runs in its first 3 km in an area with a high slope, notably wooded and with some ups and downs.
