Verbier

A truly astounding chalet, every detail of ikh chalet creates an atmosphere of ultimate alpine resplendence. This stunning property spans four floors and features top notch amenities. The living and entertaining areas are sumptuous and spacious, and the chalet offers plenty of outdoor space to relax in the warmer months.

Floor-to-ceiling French windows open out to the large wraparound terrace, the perfect spot to sit back in the warm fur covered chairs and watch the sun go down. The indoor pool with waterfall is a pièce de résistance surrounded by loungers, allowing you to relax and rejuvenate in the comfort of a private residence. A wonderful, mirage-like indoor hot tub allows you to soothe aching muscles after a hard day on the slopes. While moving to the entertainment area, you pass the wine cave with floor-to-ceiling glass and arrive in the cozy cinema room with Apple TV. While your reservation includes housekeeping, you may not want to miss out on the additional perks in the Fully Catered Alpine Luxe option.

The well-equipped kitchen is closed off, allowing maximum privacy whilst you enjoy dinner. The first floor is home to the wonderful open plan living and dining area. The dining room seats ten people and makes a great setting for any special announcements.

You enter the chalet on the first floor onto one of the two bedroom floors. Here, you will find the master bedroom with contemporary en-suite bathroom. French windows open out onto a spacious terrace where you can enjoy the spectacular views. With a total of four bedrooms, Sirocco can accommodate up to eight guests.

STELVIO – Snow scheduled in August thanks to Snow4ever

Artificial snow also in August at the Stelvio Pass, the shichuck at the border between South Tyrol and Lombardy known for the practice of summer skiing.

Since July, Sifas has produced 300 cubic meters of snow per week, despite daytime temperatures also largely above zero. The secret of snowmaking is called Snow4ever and was developed by the PoloMeccatronica start-up NeveXN together with Demaclenko, a company of the Leitner group that manufactures systems for programmed snowmaking.

The system allows to produce snow crystals of excellent quality even in extreme conditions, abundantly above zero, using the principles of thermodynamics. The system has already been adopted in New Zealand and the Stelvio has allowed to snow the connection between the arrival of the cable car and the start of the ski lift. Snow is produced independently of the outdoor temperature and without the use of chemical additives. Everything is manageable remotely and can be integrated with the normal snowmaking systems.

NeveXN is part of Polo Meccatronica, the hi-tech incubator of Trentino Sviluppo. Demaclenko, part of the Leitner group, is instead one of the world leaders in the programmed snowmaking sector.
