Specialist Terrain Design
Designing terrain is just as important as getting the surface technology right. The Snowflex® team has "unique in the world" experience, designing features to fit into the smallest space but give maximum interest to all skill levels. This in turn creates a great platform for a repeat, sustainable business thereby maximizing visitor numbers.
A successfully designed snow sports center must;
- suit all abilities
- be fun, to encourage repeat visits
- be adventurous but safe, minimizing the risk of injury to the participant
- be spectator friendly to create the social atmosphere
- be designed in a way which will keep customers coming back time and again. This means creating terrain to suit all abilities, so that customers can progress safely and rapidly.
BRITON has studied the dynamics of the sport for every skill level, and developed precise specifications, which are carefully applied to each individual design.
Each project is designed to make the best possible use of Snowflex® in order to get the best value for money for the area available. Safety is also a high priority when designing a slope.
BRITON keeps up with developments and trends in snowsports by working closely with professional skiers, snowboarders and professional terrain designers. However, there are crucial differences between mountain resorts and synthetic slopes making BRITON's design work unique.
Safety is very much a priority. Computer generated models are created to assess risk areas and adjust designs to avoid any potential incidents.
Terrain is cut extremely accurately to the design team's drawings and perfected with precise on-site engineering supervision.
BRITON works closely with architects and designers with the aim of creating a great all round customer experience.
