I became an exclusive sellers representative mainly thank´s to my good language knowledge. I was living in Austria since 1989 and regularly visiting Sibir and Irkutsk. I was traveling a lot through Kavkaz, Baikal, Mongolia, Venezuela, Alps, Slovakia and Czech republic. It was fun to explore the connection between the far away lands. I was fascinated by the snow technology and when i came across this industry, I felt like it was not very far from my original occupation as ranger. It had the same qualities: the woods, fresh air and the fine old woodlanders I loved. Many things could by done only based on a handshake, trust and a man´s word. It was necessary to pay each skiresort a visit everytime, when I needed to make a bussiness plan. I had to come up with a new approach, get to know the staff working there, introduce myself, make a connection. Than bring the customers right to the piste, sometimes even at night… set up a snowcannon and demonstrate how it works. It was a tough job to sell a piece of technology. Therefore I needed to deserve the trust first. So a few times during winter I had to organise a promotion of machinery and technology of snowsystems in Alps or at home,( Vrátna, Tatry, Zuberec, Jasná, alebo Zell am See, Sterzing, passo Stelvio, Grenoble…) to kick start the sales.
