LED lights from Lumeneering Innovations improve nighttime skiing, saving energy, helping the environment.
Batawa Ski Hill in Quinte West became the first ski facility in Canada to demonstrate an innovative outdoor lighting system from Lumeneering Innovations of Belleville. The most popular runs of Smokey and Ol Smokey received enhanced lighting, and for the first time ever, the Boomerang run is now lit. Michael Freeman and Michael Walker of Lumeneering Innovations joined Andrew Rusynyk of Batawa Ski Hill for a press conference and VIP preview oat the venue today just before its season opening on December 14, 2013.
The state-of-the-technology lighting emitting diode (LED) enhancements achieve the following:
“After an exhaustive search for a cutting edge solution, Batawa Ski Hill selected LED lights that will provide superior illumination on the runs with significant power efficiencies over traditional lights used for night skiing,” said Andrew Rusynyk. “This is important as Batawa’s overriding goal is to be environmentally and fiscally responsible while providing a quality experience for their guests.”
Lumeneering Innovations handled the entire project—from redesign to installation to proper disposal of the hazardous materials in the previous fixtures. “It’s exciting to work with market leaders like Any Rusynyk,” said Mike Freeman. “Batawa Ski Hill understands the value of doing what’s right for nighttime skiers while also doing what’s right for our environment.”
