Ski resorts need efficient ways to communicate with their staff and customers during normal daily operations and especially during emergencies. PeakPTT two-way radios provide a reliable, cost-effective communication solution for ski resorts. These devices are easy to use and offer clear, reliable communication on the slopes and in other areas of the resort.
Here are some of the top ways ski resorts can use PeakPTT two-way radios.
1) Customer Service
Customer service is paramount when it comes to ski resorts. Customers often have questions about how to get to a lift, where to find rentals, hours for stores/restaurants, and how to find their lost parent/child.
At larger resorts or for employees who work at specific locations and don’t know every answer, two-way radios can improve customer service by allowing employees to immediately reach other employees or supervisors to ask questions and receive quick answers.
Furthermore, in the case of a lost child, friend, or parent, resort employees can communicate to send out descriptions, last-seen locations, and names to spread the word and help reconnect the customers as soon as possible.
2) Ski Rentals
Push-to-talk two-way radios can be a great asset for ski rental services at a ski resort. They allow for quick and easy communication between staff members, allowing them to coordinate with each other to ensure guests get the best service possible.
For example, two-way radios can help staff keep track of when skis are due to be returned or serviced so that the shop is always fully stocked and ready for customers.
Security is always a concern at ski resorts. There are teens trying to sneak in without a pass, go out on closed trails, or start fights and endanger other guests. However, ski resorts provide a unique challenge when it comes to enforcing rules because they are often large and perpetrators can easily jump on a lift or ski away.
Peak PTT two-way radios allow ski resort workers to communicate from one side of the resort to the other to inform lift operators, ski patrol, and others to look out for specific security threats/rule breakers.
4) Ski Patrol/Safety
Every resort depends on ski patrol for smooth operations and safety. When somebody inevitably gets lost, goes onto a closed trail, or is injured, ski patrol needs to be notified immediately in order to do their job effectively.
Two-way radios allow people to immediately reach ski patrol and tell them where they’re needed and who they should look out for. PeakPTT 84-G is equipped with an SOS, panic button.
5) Lift Operations
Lift operators are the unsung heroes of every ski resort. Not only do they start and stop the lift and keep the ramp in optimal shape for guests, but collectively they keep an eye on the entire resort. Oftentimes, lift operators are the first to notice a problem such as a safety issue, a security issue, a child looking for their parent, or an injury.
Outfitting lift operators with two-way radios allow them to reach ski patrol, supervisors, and lift mechanics if any issues come up.
