A concept model makes first snow walzversuche. It is the designation of leader of the pack H-2-Motion, and, the company says, the first hydrogen-powered piste vehicle in the world. In this Winter, the test phase, the first public appearance was associated with the world Cup Ski races in Alta Badia start.

As a result, the high-voltage remain conditioned components, and batteries. "The cold temperatures for the snow vehicle use is not a Problem, and have been taken into account in the design," says a technician from Prinoth.
