Friday morning at 6.30 am and -15° Celsius, the sun is still hiding deeply below the Kärntner alps. Otto de Boer pulls his scarf closer around his neck and a puts on his headlight. Beside him another 1500 early risers who gathered in the charming little place Weissensee in Austria are looking forward to the starting signal – the starting signal for an unusual but by now traditional spectacle: the “Alternative Dutch 11-Cities-Tour“. The scenery ist he biggest natural ice surface in all of Europe: The Weissensee.

Schmidt Wasa 300+ towed sweeper offers persuasive choice in test of endurance
The Matterhorn Gotthard Railway in Disentis in Switzerland was looking for a contemporary, powerful and above all safe snow-clearing vehicle to be deployed in tough winter conditions on the Oberalp Pass. After examining various options, a Bernina snow blower was acquired from the Rhaetian Railway at the end of 2014. However, this “old lady”, who was more than 50 years old, had to be thoroughly renovated and upgraded. This was a task for Schmidt’s railway experts at the St. Blasien site.
Luigi Filippi has been familiar with the Schmidt Supra snow cutter blower ever since its early days. Working with one of the first models in this series, a Supra 3000, every year he and his team of workers at Luigi Filippi SA clear snow from the Gotthard Pass and the roads around the small town of Airolo in the Swiss canton of Ticino. After many years of service, the “old lady” can now enjoy a well-earned retirement. Due to the great experience of working with this machine, it did not take Luigi Filippi long to decide which machine should replace it: a new Schmidt Supra 4002.
For a pilot study eight appropriately equipped vehicles with winter maintenance technology from Schmidt were purchased, these includes 5 Sprayer Straliq 12500 and 3 Straliq 7500.
