  1. “Piste BEAST” – The world’s largest snow cat

The model “BEAST“, designed by the globally operating company PRINOTH from South Tyrol, is the largest piste-preparing vehicle in the world. It is almost 10 m long, over 3 m tall, has a 7 m wide work width, and is therefore larger than any of the other snow cats – and it is additionally the strongest of all. With its 527 HP, the 11.5 ton-monster pushes the snow along with its 6 m wide shovel on a total area expanse of 17.5 m² and so can flatten every ever-so-wide piste in near to no time.
