Ski Resorts Can Have Unique Communication Challenges

Snowstorms, mountainous terrain, medical emergencies… Ski resorts deal with a lot of unique communication challenges.

When you run a ski resort, you need to communicate between staff in whatever weather. Ski lift operators need to be able to quickly respond. You could need to talk between the ski lodge and the slopes.

Skiing is a dangerous sport. At any moment during skiing season, there could be a medical emergency that requires an immediate response or an airlift to a hospital.

Weather events such as snowstorms or ice storms can make skiing treacherous. Being able to judge the weather and adapt as it changes affects whether you can stay open while the weather is mostly fine or whether you close preemptively at the smallest threat.

Missing skiers are another issue. Ski patrollers are against the clock to find someone who’s gone off trail or become buried in a snowdrift.

A ski resort covers a wide area with many obstructions. Mountainous terrain makes communication difficult. Often, you can’t rely on cell phone coverage because you’re located in a remote region
