Climate change is shortening the ski season because of less snow precipitation and of a higher average winter temperature. The lack of snow represents a serious threat for the multi-billion-dollar ski tourism industry. Currently, snowmaking techniques require an air temperature below 0°C and low humidity, thus are not applicable for large part of the season.

NeveXN developed a technology able to produce high quality snow at temperatures above 0°, in all weather condition and without any chemical additives. SnowRESolution is a green snowmaker that collects the thermal energy required by the compressor by renewable energy sources (either a solar thermal collector or a biomass steam generator). The production of snow is then more environmentally sustainable, cheaper and possible in every season.
