Winter Park Resort debuts flatscreen displays on ski lift restraining bars

Sawyer D'Argonne/Ski-Hi News
Skiers and snowboarders will get to try out some new tech while cruising up the hills on some of the chairlifts at Winter Park Resort.

The ride to the top of the Mary Jane territory just got a little fancier. Winter Park Resort announced on Monday that it is teaming up with Alpine Media Technology to integrate digital information screens on the restraining bars of five chairs attached to the Mary Jane’s Super Gauge Express chairlift.

The screens will provide real-time information to guests regarding terrain openings, weather updates, digital trail maps and safety tips. The screens will also include news on upcoming Winter Park Resort events, as well as traffic conditions on I-70 courtesy of the Colorado Department of Transportation.

The first of its kind technology automatically recharges the screens as the chair passes through the lift terminal at the base of the mountain.

Alpine Media Technology is a Centennial based startup focused creating a better guest experience at resorts by providing real time “insider information” through the LiftDigital system.
