Intermec’s CN3 mobile computers with IP30 handheld RFID readers have been chosen by Vail Resorts, a premier mountain resort company, for its 2008-2009 season ski passes at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Heavenly.

The “easy scan” process makes getting through lift queues easier and more convenient by using RFID technology to give skiers and snowboarders holding 2008-2009 season passes the option to keep their passes inside their jacket and be automatically scanned by a Vail Resorts employee in the lift line.

“With Intermec RFID readers, we will be able to significantly enhance our guest experience by making the lift line process easier and more convenient for our guests who have purchased any of our four season pass products – The Epic Pass, The Colorado Pass, The Summit Pass or The Heavenly Pass,” said Robert Urwiler, chief information officer for Vail Resorts.

The Intermec CN3 mobile computers with IP30 handheld RFID readers combine one of the smallest, most advanced, rugged computers in the world with a powerful, modular passive UHF RFID handle. The modularity of the IP30 and the RFID-readiness of Intermec mobile computers mean the power of RFID can be literally added now or at any point in the future.

The Intermec CN3 also integrates GPS and Bluetooth to increase efficiency and safety by enabling hands-free turn-by-turn voice navigation With 3G WAN and Cisco Compatible WiFi and Bluetooth radios, users are connected with voice and high-speed data (GSM/EDGE or CDMA/EV-DO) anywhere they go.

“Vail Resorts is a leader in providing exceptional experiences for their guests,” said Intermec Vice President of RFID, Ray Cronin. “We are pleased that Intermec CN3 mobile computers with IP30 RFID readers help continue that history of excellence by giving their ski and snowboard guests the kind of easy experience that will become the future of lift line processes.”
