Innovag Snow Systems - The Technique
Snowsystems for Indoor Applications
Innovags PowderStar Serie is not based on conventional systems, but is characterised by a fundamental patented new development. The new development of the indoor snow technique was necessary as the high expectations and demands of our industrial customers could not be satisfied with conventional indoor snow systems. Feasibility studies for the automobile industry or special demands for test benches of railway components already inspired the Innovag AG years ago to investigate the facets and the limits of feasibility of the snowing technique.
The results of this research and development work were implemented successfully in industry. These, in turn, led to the fact that, for example, the german railway company “Deutsche Bahn” declared this technique as “state-of-the-art” in the division of material testing for brake facings.
The high demands of the industry for quality and the reproducibility of the produced snow as well as the high availability of the Innovag snow producing systems prompted the Innovag AG to install this technique and with it, the experiences gained also in indoor facilities for winter sports, wellness & spa as well as for recreational facilities.

The Innovag Snow Systems converts already a few centimetres of water into snow at ambiente temperatures around 0°C. Very tiny snow parts are formed or if requested also tiny snow flakes. These snow flakes build up a snow cover on the ground as well-known from nature.
The Innovag PowderStar S6 can manage to produce snow with a density of 100 kg/m³ up to more than 300 kg/m³. This means that snow can be produced with the Innovag Snow systems in any quality requested - from powder snow as found in nature only under most ideal conditions up to moist snow.
The production of wet snow is an easy task. If only wet or very moist snow can be produced, then you have to live with ice. This is quite natural. When a water droplet instead of a snow grain falls to the ground, then it can never turn to snow again.
The optimal snow quality is a precondition for top athletes as well as for leisure time athletes to go in for sports. It is the learner for whom it is very important to train on perfect slopes so he does not lose enthusiasm when he has to exercise his first swings on icy slopes. He gets a wrong picture from the fascination of winter sports.
