Environmentally-Friendly Prinoth Bison Groomer Purchased For This Winter Season (13-Apr-08)

FALLS CREEK, VIC, APRIL 13 2008 - A state-of-the-art silver and black groomer ( Falls Creek will be the first alpine resort in the Southern Hemisphere to get one)..

A state-of-the-art silver and black groomer ( Falls Creek will be the first alpine resort in the Southern Hemisphere to get one) that is park capable, has a special tiller and is a good all-rounder, has another attribute it has noticeably-reduced emissions.

Aptly named Bison, a freedom-loving herd animal which adapts easily to extreme climactic conditions, the new groomer will be a put to good use by the resort¹s slope grooming operators.

Whilst the largest alpine resort in Victoria is continually receiving accolades for its grooming (from resort guests) the additional robust Prinoth groomer which has an innovative, Euromot-III-compliant motor
technology, will be another element of the alpine resort¹s quest to preserve the natural environment..

By acquiring the most up-to-date equipment Falls Creek Ski Lifts is striking a balance between performance, economy and the ecology.

The new Bison by Prinoth is a very different Œanimal¹ to its predecessors due to the enhanced technology employed by the designers of the latest groomer to be added to the well respected manufacturers line-up of ski area-friendly artillery of equipment.

The new, agile powerhouse, sets new standards for productivity and efficiency.

It is probably akin to the latest planes being rolled out by Airbus and Boeing. Each new version of a groomer has higher performance values with the bonus of minimum consumption and reduced emissions.

The selection of resistant components and robust construction has a very important aspect in relation to the groomer¹s ongoing maintenance. Less time in the slope grooming shed means more time on the slopes.
