Ski Movie Slope In The SkiWelt (26-Jun-11)

A new attraction awaits skiers and boarders on the slopes at Scheffau in the Austrian SkiWelt next winter.

The resort’s new ‘Ski movie’ slope will give lift pass holders the chance to be automatically filmed as they descend the slope.

The system works when holders of one of the electronic ski passes valid at the resort (a Ski Welt, Kitzbuhel Alps or Tirol Snowcard ticket) passes through an electronic hands free gate. A fixed camera follows the action as the pass holder descends the ‘Ski movie’ slope and a second camera electronically ‘follows’ the skier or boarder.

The resulting video is available to view immediately on screens at the bottom of the slope and also on the internet to send to friends, post on social networking sites or just used for personal technique analysis.

Best of all the Ski Movie slope plays recorded applause for your efforts.

The Ski Movie slope is the latest addition to the list of electronic perks offered by the SkiWelt’s various hi-tec lift tickets, including the online ‘Skiline’ service which records stats on your day on the slopes – distance and vert travelled, speed of descents and so on, all downloadable on the web. The service is free to card holders.
