SNOWsat goes America

Diamond Peak is the American SNOWsat pioneer

This past fall, Diamond Peak joined the rapidly growing list of ski resorts using SNOWsat. The slope and fleet management system sets itself apart from competitors with highly accurate snow depth measurement capabilities.

Diamond Peak, which sits on the northeast shore of Lake Tahoe, Nevada faces drought that has plagued the popular winter sports region for the last three seasons. SNOWsat’s depth measurement features have allowed for Diamond Peak’s grooming and snow making teams to make and move snow where it is most needed on the trails. Capitalizing on efficiency, Diamond Peak has been able to provide the best possible surface to customers despite the low snow year.

Jack Coughlin, Slope Maintenance Manager at Diamond Peak claims: "SNOWsat has been a valuable tool for grooming as well as for snowmaking. With this year’s low snow conditions the grooming staff is better able to manage the snow surface and reliably find where they can harvestsnow to cover over thinner areas and maintain a consistent depth across the trails. From a snowmaking perspective I am able to use the graphic maps from SNOWsat Z to take a look at where the hill is in most need of snow and concentrate snowmaking efforts there."

Steve Rhodes, Kässbohrer All Terrain Vehicles Inc. resident SNOWsat service technician installed and carefully monitors Diamond Peak’s data from a remote computer. Rhodes states that “Diamond Peak has been the perfect match as our first USA customer. It will always be a partnership working with each ski resort as we are not only installing vehicle hardware to collect data, but we are working with the resort to install the infrastructure for the SNOWsat system."

While the Tahoe region hopes for much more snow before the season ends, Diamond Peak plans on continuing to make and move snow efficiently in preparation for the possible continuation of drought conditions. The data that SNOWsat provides the resort will assure that Diamond Peak does not use water or energy unnecessarily. It should set a big precedent to other resorts in similar situations as Diamond Peak continues to lower environmental impact, while providing a safe and fun surface to customers.
