Imagine getting onto a gondola at the end of a ski day, downloading to the base and getting delivered to your front door without ever having to step foot out of the cabin. LEITNER has been fine tuning a intermodal mobility system for years that could make farfetched scenario a reality and it is set hit the market in 2025. The ConnX primarily aims to revolutionize urban mobility by connecting gondola cabins to an autonomous electric vehicles but its not hard to imagine how this technology might be applied across the ski industry.
