As a well-established company for kid’s playgrounds, the HotSnow company is always looking for ways to expand their target group and sales market. While Parents with young children, already experience the cosy winter atmosphere of HotSnow, other target groups are left out of the HotSnow experience.

SWOT Analysis

Target Group

Our target group consists of active, energetic, and competitive teenagers and young adults, who enjoy pushing themselves to new limits. They are likely to be physically fit and enjoy participating in sports and physical activities that require strength, agility, and endurance, such as running, biking, or swimming.
Members of this target group may be drawn to compete with others and measure their progress and success, such as obstacle courses, adventure races, or extreme sports like rock climbing, snowboarding, or parkour. They may also be interested in trying new and unconventional sports.

Moreover, they are likely to be socially connected, with a strong interest in sharing their experiences and achievements with others through social media and online platforms.


Our vision is to offer youth and young adults a unique challenge. They should be able to compete in a sporting way.

The HotSnow Hurler is a racing experience for young adults and children of 12 years and older. On a kart-like track covered with HotSnow, you let yourself be pulled by means of a pulley and try to maneuver your snowtube, bob or sled through the curves and around the hills. At one point on the track, photos are taken of the visitors, which you can purchase after the lap. You can also compete with friends and try to get the best lap time without flying out of one of the numerous turns.

The HotSnow Hurler is a year-round activity available only in combination with HotSnow. It allows the HotSnow Company to expand its target group and opens up new business areas.
