The weather conditions were fitting for a PistenBully 300 Polar. Coming from a resort in Switzerland, via the the PistenBully factory in Germany where is was reconditioned, it’s ‘new to Nevis’ with just some 3,300 hours on the clock.

We’re looking forward to getting it up and out on the slopes as soon as possible.  Its blade is significantly larger than any of the existing groomers, so will be able to quickly shift 100’s of tonnes of snow around the pistes.  Particularly useful for building jumps and shifting snow in the summit terrain park.  It’s also got a flex-tiller which will leave a cleaner and much better prepared piste than before.

Now we just have to wait for enough snow to open!
