I get a google search blank page.

As to going hi tech. Last season they were using RFID technolgy in the lift lines. That means if your pass (daily or season) is on your person it scans automatically. You don't have empty chairs going up while a teen ager with a scanning gun tries to read your ticket. Apparently it was their 2nd year doing this and the bugs were worked out. Solitude was in their first year of this technology and about 1 time in 3 it failed and you still had to get hand scanned by a minimum wage employee. Is that what the link was about?

No, the link is an interactive view of the slopes and mountain from multiple places on the mountain. Quite interesting, and it does bring back pleasant memories for those of us who ski Alta frequently.

Worked fine for me.

Didn't have any trouble with the RFID lift passes when we were there in 2008.

When are you going back? I'm hoping to take Marz Jr. again this season. She had a grand time in the powder her first trip.

Colonel, Thanks for the help. I tried it and got the same (null) result. I guess it isn't going to happen on my computer as presently set up. I tried both Firefox and Internet Explorer. Anyhow I've been there and carry the memories of 5 Alta weeks last year and looking forward to maybe a bit more this year.
