Skiing is all about getting out into nature and experiencing
the wind on your face and the brilliant gleam of snow crys-tals.
Alpine Media gets this. According to Jeff Connors, Alpine
Media co-founder and chief engineer, the Alpine team was
very sensitive to the total guest experience when designing
the LiftDigital platform.
“Our system has no sound and the LiftDigital screens lay in
low profile on the lift bar, out of the direct line of sight. This
makes useful and relative content just a glance away without
disrupting the views of some of the world’s most beautiful
resorts,” he said, noting that the team at Alpine Media are
avid skiers themselves. “Our mission from the beginning has
been to provide resort guests with as much useful, real-time
information as possible to help them navigate their day and
be able to keep their phones in their pockets while doing so.
It was very rewarding to see several years of research and
development come to life at Winter Park last year, with guests
embracing our platform.”
The idea from the outset was to create a one-stop-shop
where all the information pieces would go to a single portal
for distribution to all points at the resort. “Guests are their
