Snow-melting Mats Keep Outdoor Balconies Clear of Snow and Ice at Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole
Doraville, GA, December, 2018—Surrounded by the breathtaking vistas of the Grand Teton Mountains, the Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole in Teton Village, WY, bills itself as the perfect destination for rustic adventure. But with winter temperatures dropping to the single digits and below, and snowfall averaging 113 inches a year, until now guests had to view this winter wonderland from behind glass doors and windows.
“We wanted our guests to enjoy the views from the balcony of their room, if they wanted to,” said Kris Breunig, engineering administrator at the resort. “To solve the problem of keeping the balconies clear of snow and ice, recently we equipped them with HeatTrak snow-melting mats so now our guests can exit their rooms to take in the great mountain scenery.”
HeatTrak’s snow melting mat systems are designed to prevent snow and ice accumulation at industrial facilities and commercial environments, according to senior HeatTrak product specialist Ryan Williams. He explained that HeatTrak mats prevent new snow from accumulating by melting it on contact at a rate of two inches per hour.
“Our snow melting mats are durable, economical, and stand up to heavy foot traffic. They have made a significant difference at Four Seasons Resort by keeping their balconies clear of snow and ice without compromising on cleanliness, while at the same time saving them time and maintenance costs. The issue they had is a common one at facilities with heavy foot traffic. Our mats have become the ‘go-to’ solution to address this problem,” Williams said.
