Cant help but be reminded of the old lady in the commercials with her famous line, “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!”
This might be the greatest advancement in ski patrol response time we have seen in ages, but there are also drawbacks to the proposed system.
Can you really only offer a premium safety package to those who can afford it?
Will already busy ski patrols be inundated with false alarms decreasing their effectiveness for real emergencies?
Will people feel a false sense of security and take risks they wouldn’t previously because they have a direct line to rescuers?
…the list goes on. Feel free to chime in with pro and cons.
