Building the ice track
Starting point, the park in the autumn.
« Normally » during the month of November, in the night, temperatures drop to below zero degrees. We can then start to create artificial snow.
We need to create approx. 1000 m³ of snow to make the circuit where the karts go and 1000 m³ to make the embankments around the curcuit, so in total 2000m³
This production is done mainly at night. At this time of year the sun still heats the air during the day.
Preparing the base
Watering is manual and is usually done at night because that is when the temperatures are lower.
It takes about another 50 hours of watering divided into several sessions to obtain a layer of compact and uniform ice.
Only after all these hours in difficult conditions , with temperatures dropping below -20 °, that the track can be used.
