Salt Lake City, UT, Nov. 7, 2001--When skiers and snowboarders head for the slopes of Park City Mountain Resort this season, getting lift tickets will be even easier, thanks to a series of interactive kiosks recently installed by the resort near ticket windows.

"The kiosks provide a quick and easy way (for customers) who know what they want and where they are going to purchase a lift ticket with their credit card," said Kyle LaMalfa of Park City Mountain Resort.

The resort purchased the custom-branded ticketing kiosks from Companion Systems, a kiosk enclosure manufacturer based in North Salt Lake. The units mount to an exterior wall to conserve space, housing the hardware components inside the building. The kiosk integrates a touch screen monitor, credit card reader, and printers for tickets and receipts.

"Companion Systems specializes in producing well-branded enclosures. For Park City Mountain Resort, we created an eye-catching, appealing unit that will help attract users to purchase lift tickets while complementing the existing ticket windows," said Amy Burks, Director of Marketing for Companion Systems.

Volunteers on the plaza at the Resort will direct skiers and snowboarders to the ticketing kiosks and will be trained to provide assistance. Tickets will be available 24 hours a day through the kiosks. During the off-season, the units will provide information to resort visitors.
