Right now the app allows users to view theÂ weather, hill conditions, lift status, maps, and the â€œWhistler camâ€. However users may also track their total vertical distance skied and further share it via Twitter and Facebook.
Resort Technology Partners (RTP) has partnered withÂ Whistler Blackcomb and TELUS, a Canadian telecommunications company, to create a smartphone app functionality that will allow riders to use their mobile phones as lift tickets.
This new mobile lift ticket feature will make this app even better, as skiers and boarders will be able to eliminate the paper ticket and just use their device! TheÂ upcoming feature is being tested internally by Whistler Blackcomb and will be introduced soon.
Thanks to Acura1.6 for the heads-up!
