Whether curled up by the fire or out shredding the bunny slope, staying connected during a ski vacation is a necessity. While mobile devices are important for sharing snowy moments with friends, they also serve as a primary tool and vital lifeline in the event of an accident or emergency.
In a rare opportunity, AT&T offered media a look behind the curtain at the new Distributed Antenna System (DAS) at Copper Mountain Resort. The tour put a face on the technologies we depend on everywhere we go. The tour included a behind-the-scenes look at Union Creek Schoolhouse, American Eagle Lift Shack and Copper Station. Some key highlights of the project include:
DAS technology camouflaged to blend in with natural environment.
AT&T-owned DAS covers Burning Stones, East and West Villages at Copper Mountain.
More than 2 miles of fiber optic cabling installed throughout resort.
Seven antennas hidden on ski lifts, behind secret doors, and inside discreet domes.
Wireless coverage equal to one full cell site.
Media coverage was extensive, here are the highlights:
