New Mountain Technology

This question is designed to gather feedback on a new, on-mountain technology I am developing. Below is a recap:

-On mountain kiosks displaying real-time traffic/grooming/conditions
-Ability to rent GPS transponders that track and record your data
-Ability to search at kiosk for friends/family on mountain who also have transponders
-Mayday button on transponder
-System utilized by ski patrol
-System can be intregated into snowmaking equipment systems to monitor multiple variables
-Ability for users to report hazardous conditions at kiosk for direct integration into maps
-Real-time lift wait times/traffic/status

Would having this at a ski resort mountain be considered an assett to you and would you use it? Would you want to see anything specific included?

Please take the poll and submit any comments/feedback you have.

This sounds like a definite asset to anyone skiing the mountain alone or with friends.
The amount of times i have mistaken another person for one of my group just because of similar jackets.

Also, if you happen to be alone you have early warnings and a mayday system.

Good luck with your development! Hope to see this technology on the slopes soon!

This sounds like a great idea, if skiers carry around a little unit just make sure it's portable and fits into jacket cell phone pockets or at least normal pockets (aka the antenna doesn't stick out 6 inches hopefully).

I voted that it would maybe affect my resort decision, maybe not every time but I would try to get to a resort that uses that just to see how it works, especially if I am skiing alone.

Good work, sounds very cool.
