Want to know what’s open on Mary Jane? Just hop on the Super Gauge Express chairlift.
Winter Park Resort has teamed up with Centennial startup Alpine Media Technology to place information screens on the restraining bars of five chairs located on Mary Jane’s Super Gauge Express chairlift.
The screens, which are mute and roughly the size of an iPad, will provide real-time information in terrain openings, weather updates and Interstate 70 traffic information from the Colorado Department of Transportation.
They’ll also include a digital trail map, safety tips and news on upcoming Winter Park Resort events.
The technology is the first of its kind in the ski industry worldwide and uses a revolutionary system that recharges the screens as the chair passes through the lift terminal at the base of the mountain.
