Centennial State startup Alpine Media Technology is putting an end to awkward chairlift conversations, starting at Winter Park Resort, where select seats on the Super Gauge Express now boast digital screens on their restraint bars. The multipanel setup displays maps of runs, weather forecasts, lift closures, and scheduled après-ski events—and, unsurprisingly, ads (at least they’re silent). Next year, Alpine plans to install 4,000 to 6,000 of these displays at 10 different resorts nationwide.
