Spidex installed poles and anchors for impact netting on the FIS race track in Lake Louise.
Marmot Basin installed fences for future snow farming. Spidex was contracted to place the sleeves but instead of digging, we pounded the holes. This has the advantage that the sleeves have a much more solid base.
Boulder and stump removal and burn piling
If boulder fields need to leveled, we use our grapple bucket to replace the rocks. Stump removal and burn piles are another option to smooth out runs.
Ski-lift tower foundations
We do excavations for chairlift towers and terminals for both Leitner Poma and Doppelmayr. The use of a Spider has advantages in national parks, where low ground impact is requested or in areas where the terrain makes the use of a conventional excavator impossible. We demolish and reclaim previous tower footings.
Vegetation control on skiruns
We are specialized in mulching previously hand- logged skiruns. We mulch the stumps and the stems down to ground level but also brush diamond black skiruns that are overgrown with alders or willows.
