Superlight, SuperTeam, SuperBesse
Last winter AAA-LUX France installed new lighting at the ski resort Super Besse – Puy de Sancy, located in the Department of Puy-de-Dôme in France. The on piste skiing consists of 43 km distributed on 27 tracks (5 green, 9 blue, 9 red and 4 black) between 1300 m and 1840 m altitude, on the south-eastern slope of Puy de Sancy. AAA-LUX lighted three of the slopes with a higher color temperature light compared to the existing sodium lighting, to increase visibility and safety on the tracks. Controls are centralized at one location in the valley.
Besides Super Besse AAA-LUX has supplied many other lighting projects for winter sports in recent years. Some highlights are ski slopes at Alpe D’Huez in France, Saalbach Hinterglemm in Austria, ski jump in Seefeld Austria, ice hockey in Norway and a huge winter sports area in Estonia, with biathlon and cross Country stadiums and long ski tracks in the forest.
