Professionals who own, operate, and maintain ski resorts know the planning and precision needed to keep ski slopes in prime condition throughout the season is no small task. Among the best ways to provide that is with GPS technology.
As a dealer of Topcon GPS technology and the exclusive dealer of ARENA Slope Management software, RDO Integrated Controls is pairing the two to provide a solution to enhance quality, improve efficiency, and lead to more cost-effective operation and maintenance of hills and mountains.
A proven technology used in the Alps and Scandinavia for years, the ARENA SlopeManagement system is a cloud-based software that works with Topcon GPS on any snowcat groomer, making it ideal for ski areas with mixed fleets. Using real-time GPS position data, the system tracks and displays snow depths relative to a map of the ski area.
The benefits of the ARENA and Topcon solution are primarily realized in three key aspects of slope management – snowmaking, grooming, and terrain parks.
