Conversations around the role of technology at ski resorts exploded as we entered the first pandemic winter. The need to provide guests with a "touchless” experience saw many ski areas implementing or upgrading tech. Sweeping digital adoption has been a silver lining of the pandemic, and there's still work to be done. Our tech savvy guests have come to expect a frictionless experience. Meeting that expectation will be a prime way for the snowsports industry to retain its current participants and tap into the surge of new outdoor participants, leading to growth and enhanced guest satisfaction. Find information on navigating the new technology landscape, tech usage and implementation best practices, and a plethora of suppliers here, in the SAM Technology Mountain Department.
