Driving technology in the Hospitality and Resort Industries

Welcome all new or returning attendees!

The second annual Mountain Technology Symposium will be held at the famous Sun Valley Resort. We're taking up the torch to keep this exciting event moving forward. Building from the inaugural event in Telluride last year this years' symposium will bring key players in the resort and mountain industries together to address technology opportunities and challenges. This event will provide an unprecedented level of engagement, collaboration, and interaction. Each participant will be provided a unique opportunity to interact and network directly with like-minded peers within the industry. Imagine experiencing an open environment in which we can all exchange ideas and work together to come up with innovative solutions to propel us all into the future. This event will provide that environment and will bring together all of those like-minded peers to work with.

Perfect access management begins at your customer's home.

Perfect access management does not only play an important role at the ski resort. It does not start at the cash desk on site, but rather at your customer´s home, such as with the purchase of online tickets. And it does not end with the last descent down the mountain. Because bonus points, valuable information about the ski day, and numerous other benefits make sure that the perfect ski day continues to provide value. For your guests – but also for you: All relevant facts and figures are available at a glance ensuring professional post-processing of information, facilitating cutting-edge marketing activities, and enabling long-term contact with your customers directly in the home.
With SKIDATA you have the right partner by your side to realize and to benefit from a system which goes far beyond the traditional concept of access management. The SKIDATA solution offers a 360° perspective that not only takes your needs into account, but also the needs of your guests. Create comprehensive customer experiences with the SKIDATA Customer Journey.
