As agreed I meet Peter and Florian at the snow vehicle garage in Hochgurgl. After a short walk we reach the idyllically located workstation right next to the ski slope – offering uninterrupted panoramic views. Entering through the door, I am welcomed by several slope grooming machines still enjoying their summer sleep. Peter is working in the rear part of the huge hall. The 41-year old expert from Längenfeld has been working for the Mountain Lift Company in Hochgurgl for 17 years already. He started as a snow groomer and attended further trainings by climbing up the career ladder step by step. Today he has the position of Deputy Operations Manager in Hochgurgl, responsible for the snow vehicle pool and the snow-making system as well as for all avalanche blasting operations in winter. Also his co-worker Florian Praxmarer from Zwieselstein – he is a skilled car mechanic expert – started as a snow groomer in Hochgurgl about 13 years ago. For seven years he has been working together with Peter in the snow vehicle garage, guaranteeing that there is always “movement” (slope grooming machines) and “snow drizzle” (snow guns) in the ski area.
