The Canadian ski resort Whistler Blackcomb relies on the expertise of the access expert SKIDATA and offer guests from now on comfortable access and pre-sale solutions.
In total, over 90 access readers and more than 100 ticket printers were installed in Whistler from July to September 2014. The professional access control system provides for, in particular, an increase in the customer comfort. In addition, tickets can be read quickly and safely.
Furthermore, with the installation of Opos.Cash a ticket presale solution was provided. This makes lift ticket sales available to guests in hotels, shops, tourist offices, etc. These decentralized ticket presales relieve load on manual payment stations and guests enjoy a convenient and quick ticket purchase - with immediate validity of the ticket.
Located in the Canadian province of British Columbia, the Whistler Blackcomb ski resort with its 32 km² of slope area is considered one of the most popular ski areas in North America. Two mountains are developed for winter sports: Whistler Mountain (2182m) and Blackcomb Peak (2440m). Thanks to a glacier on Blackcomb Peak, Whistler offers skiing enjoyment almost all year long. Whistler Blackcomb hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver for the alpine skiing competitions.
Further installations in Whistler Blackcomb will follow.
