Pipe system for snow production. Les Trois Vallées.

Les Trois Vallées (The Three Valleys) in France is the world's largest ski resort, with 600 km of slopes in an area covering 18.5 km². More than 2,000 snow guns are used to extend the season and enable the slopes to handle up to 260,000 skiers an hour.
Alvenius has supplied pipe systems for these snow guns since the 1980s.

Alvenius FlowMax® with both internal and external CorroFlo® coatings is ideal for this type of application, with strict demands on low energy consumption and high reliability.
The CorroFlo® coating fulfils the requirements of CM-5 for marine environments and tests show the service life of undamaged CorroFlo® pipes to be well over 75 years. What's more, Alvenius FlowMax® quick coupling pipes are installed using hand tools alone, requiring neither special training nor welding.
Low internal friction and low flow resistance enable significant cost savings thanks to lower energy consumption and smaller and fewer pumps in the system.
