For the 2019/2020 winter season, we're adding electric snowmobiles to our stable - just a small part of the sustainability work that SkiStar does. Sälen is the first with its two electric snowmobiles and in the next phase all ski resorts will be equipped with electric snowmobiles.
The electric snowmobiles are from Taiga Motors and will be the first of its kind in Europe. Electric snowmobiles have been trialled earlier but they were only rebuilt ordinary snowmobiles - the new snowmobiles from Taiga motors are specifically manufactured to be electric and still be able to handle every challenge that the mountain throws at them.
In addition to the environmental benefits, the electric snowmobiles are also far quieter, making the slopes more enjoyable.
