Heltzel continued “We sold our first Breckenridge ticket on Saturday, following Vail Resorts’ agreement on Friday. This points out one of the many benefits of our real-time ticket on demand system… We can respond to changes in price and offerings within hours. With pre-printed tickets, this change would have taken weeks”.
Skiers using the Livewire kiosk can now buy tickets to ski Keystone, Breckenridge, Arapahoe Basin, Loveland, Winter Park, Sunlight and Ski Cooper, with more resorts lining up for next year’s season.
Michael Imhof, Vail Resorts’ Director of Strategic Alliance and Colorado Sales said “Our partnership with Livewire is a sound decision which has allowed us to begin moving away from paper ticketing. Livewire allows us to track real-time off-mountain sales on a daily basis and respond nimbly to the needs of the Front Range skier. Livewire is meeting our customers’ needs for access and convenience and meeting our needs for accountability, accounting reconciliation and customer access. “
Livewire’s kiosks are placed in high-traffic retail stores such as REI, Christy Sports and Breeze/Max. This new method of lift ticket distribution will become more widely available by the 2002-03 season as Livewire plans to expand upon their presence with an ambitious deployment schedule in Colorado, Lake Tahoe and other US ski markets.
