Lubricants for equipment in mountain resorts

Biodegradable lubricants for equipment used on mountains and in ski resorts: snow groomers, snowmobiles, snow guns. Specific lubricants for mechanical lifts, approved by constructor POMAGALSKI®.


Equipment maintenance in mountain resorts involves lubrication of a multiplicity of mechanisms: mechanical lifts and the fleet of equipment.

Lubricants used in ski resorts must meet constraints specific to this activity:

  • Intensive use of equipment during the winter season
  • Resistance to very low temperatures, humidity and the corrosion of mechanical elements
  • Heavy loads
  • Mothballing of equipment during the off-season
  • Optimum security of equipment intended for the general public
  • Environmental considerations: the mountain is a sensitive environment where the use of biodegradable lubricants is key.

Mechanical lifts, platter lifts, snow guns, snow groomers, snowmobiles, caterpillars are all devices sensitive to quality lubrication for their correct operation and their longevity.

CONDAT has involved itself in this field through developing a very large range of lubricants answering these constraints. To meet constructors' requirements, the CONDAT range includes high-performance lubricants allowing for rationalisation of procurement.
