Ecosign is especially proud of our many projects which have been built and are operating successfully.
For example, more than 50 major lifts have been built from Ecosign Master Plans in the last 5 years. Since our inception, hundreds of lift and piste systems have been implemented to Ecosign’s specifications. We have designed 15 Pedestrian Resort Villages, the majority of which have been built. We have completed the design, layout and construction monitoring for competition venues at five Olympic Winter Games and two World Alpine Championships. We have also designed many snow tubing facilities as well as beginner zone and base area transformations.
