Snö Mountain Implements Precision Dynamics' Smart Band® RFID Wristbands for Automated Ski Lift Passes and Cashless Point-of-Sale
San Fernando, CA (January 23, 2007) – Precision Dynamics Corporation (PDC), a global leader in automatic wristband identification, announces the implementation of its Smart Band® RFID Wristband System at the recently renovated Snö Mountain (formerly Montage Mountain) in the Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania. Snö Mountain, an alpine ski and multi-season recreation center, opened on January 12, 2007.
The RFID wristband system provides added conveniences to guests including automated ski lift tickets and cashless point-of-sale (POS). Purchasing food and beverages at the ski park is a breeze using Smart Band's contactless payment feature. Guests can load money onto their wristband at POS stations using cash, credit or debit cards. Smart Bands work well in any environment—wet or dry—making them a great addition to any ski resort.
"Implementing PDC's RFID system will allow us to focus on the customer's overall experience and added convenience, setting Snö Mountain apart from the competition," says Denis Carlson, President of Snö Mountain. "Also, having a cashless payment option will help increase spending at POS locations such as the Snö Grill."
Snö Mountain expects over 175,000 visitors to the ski park this winter season and approximately 500,000 visitors during the summer season at Snö Cove waterpark. The Pocono Mountains are a popular resort and vacation area for residents of Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey and Maryland. This is PDC's second RFID implementation in this area, with Great Wolf Lodge being the first.
