– regardless of weather conditions

Get a head start for your autumn ski season already in spring, on the day of your choice! The Snow Secure SES Concept makes this possible – without frost and/or natural snow.

Overview

SES stands for Snow Secure Eternal Snow Storage. The system is developed by Snow Secure Ltd Finland/ CEO Mikko Martikainen for guaranteeing snow in ski resorts. The first snow storage made by Mikko Martikainen was established in year 2001. The concept has been developed further after the first launch.

With the SES Concept it is possible to have a fixed opening date, even if there is no natural snow or no below zero temperature in which to generate snow. The SES concept is the most economical way to guarantee snow in above zero temperatures, if you compare the SES with very expensive all-weather snow generators.

A typical size for SES is 5 000 m3 – 30 000 m3. SES can also be more than 100 000 m3 in size and you can have several SES in line.
