Tech Startup: Captive Audience Secured on Chairlift

Alpine Media Technology brings innovative content and display to the slopes.

IN A NUTSHELL

Peyerl, VandeKemp and Connors are skiers and snowboarders; they based their display design on what they’d like to see. There’s no audio to interrupt peace and quiet, and the high-definition screens offer crystal-clear images.

Then there are the logistics: Real-time information is delivered wirelessly, the displays recharge their capacitors in the bullwheel at the base and all of the technology is rugged enough to withstand the cold and snow. “It’s pretty harsh conditions,” Peyerl says. “We’re rated for 40 below zero. These things have to stay out all night and boot up in the morning.”
