ATT and WIFI

It is official.  Your ATT cell phone is now working at The Basin.  Repeaters were installed in both the A-Frame and Black Mountain Lodge.  Based on all the beeping and ringing my phone is doing now, I think the service must be pretty darn good.  There are opportunities for other carriers to piggy back on these repeaters.  At this time, I am not sure when the other carriers will be on board.

In this process, we also increased our overall capacity for digital communication.  The wifi service and capacity is much greater.  I look forward to that first big Saturday in the A-Frame when everyone tries to download a video at the same time and tests the real capacity.  Let me know about your experiences with both the cell and wifi coverage.

You say this like it's a good thing. One of the best things about A-Basin was that no one was talking on cell phones in the bar, on the lift, on the trails, etc.

The cell service and wifi subject is very interesting. Some people really want it and some really don't. It is not uncommon for us to hear completely opposite opinions on this subject. Some people want to get away completely. Others can get away by staying connected. I imagine this will generate some good discussion.

Thank you, Alan. I for one support this change and am happy to have this option. While some are able to get away without any communication while taking a day on the slopes, many of us are not able to. This helps us be able to enjoy the slopes more while also staying connected as needed. It's much appreciated.

Its 2013. You need this feature to stay up with your competition. In an age where I can do a full days of work on my phone, its a must.
