Winter Park Skiers React To Flat Screens On Chairlift Safety Bar

“I don’t freeze my hand to have to look at this map on here to figure where we’re going once we get up to the top so its pretty cool.”

Most of the Facebook feedback on the last article about Winter Park installing flatscreens on lifts was luke warm at the very best but the people from CBS Denver only seemed to speak to people who loved the new tech.  Maybe that was just lucky or they somehow engineered that?

The screens provide real-time information about terrain openings, weather updates, digital trail maps as well as traffic conditions on I-70 courtesy of CDOT. The first of its kind technology automatically recharges the screens as the chair passes through the lift terminal at the base of the mountain.

What are your thoughts now that they are operational? Helpful or dumb?
