WINTERSTEIGER in high demand in Sochi
WINTERSTEIGER's strong position in Russia means it has been able to acquire a large number of orders since 2010 due to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. In June 2013, the company received another go-ahead for a large project, namely the equipping of the ski rental center at the Gornaya Karusel ski resort in Krasnaya Polyana.
Among other things, the order includes supplying Innova and Premia dryers and various models of ski and snowboard racks. 240 Top storage lockers will have space for 1,080 pairs of skis, and the ski service workshop will be able to produce 80 pairs of perfectly tuned skis every hour. A Discovery SDF, a Sigma B, a Basejet and a Waxjet 93 will be used here. Equipping the resort with BOOTDOC products completes the order, and WINTERSTEIGER is pleased it is going to be able to provide everything from one source and by the end of November, as promised.
250 racing structures tested
WINTERSTEIGER machines have already demonstrated their strengths in the extensive stone grinding project for the Russian Olympic Committee: Using a Race NC, a Sigma RS and a Discovery, skis and snowboards belonging to Russian Olympic participants were ground and racing structures tested in different weather conditions.
A team made up of representatives from the Russian Olympic Committee, the Russian Skiing and Snowboard Federation, ski service experts and athletes tested about 250 racing structures from January to March. The athletes tried out 250 structures (140 for Nordic skiing and 110 for Alpine skiing and snowboarding) on the racecourse at the Rosa Khutor ski resort and on the Psekhako Plateau. At the end, the top 25 structures (11 for Nordic skiing and 14 for Alpine skiing), i.e. the structures with the best results, were stored in the Russian Olympic Committee's database. This valuable data will optimize the conditions for the Russian competitors in all skiing disciplines at the 2014 Winter Olympics.
