Only as thick as a ballpoint pen in diameter, they carry the full weight of a snow groomer on a steep slope. Snow groomer winch ropes are the tough workhorses in the wide range of ropes at Jakob Rope Systems. Their special design gives the ropes maximum load-bearing capacity and smooth running characteristics. Jakob rope experts Konstantin Kühner and Marcel Meier talk in this interview.
