skiKrumb Brings Peace of Mind to Big White Ski Resort for 2023-2024 Season

skiKrumb Brings Peace of Mind to Big White Ski Resort for 2023-2024 Season

Guests at Big White Ski Resort will have a little more peace of mind when they hit the slopes this season, as skiKrumb, an innovative and easy-to-use GPS-enabled device will be available at the Okanagan’s most popular resort.

skiKrumb provides peace of mind to parents on the ski hill, thanks to a long-lasting battery, and advanced technology that reaches users where cell phones and other GPS-enabled trackers cannot. skiKrumb is the first on-mountain GPS tracker available for public rental in the world.

“As an Okanagan parent who spent many days with my kids on the ski hill, I couldn’t be more excited to be launching skiKrumb at Big White Ski Resort this season,” says Keith MacIntyre, Founder and CEO of skiKrumb“skiKrumb was borne from my experience of getting separated from my son on the ski hill several years ago, and after years of research and development, I’m pleased to be unveiling a solution that will help give parents peace of mind at the resort, and help keep fun the focus this season.”

skiKrumb devices are available for pick-up at Mountain Lifestyle Outlets on Highway 33 in Kelowna, starting today. Additional pick-up locations will be announced in the coming weeks.

“We’re always focused on providing innovative solutions for our customers, which is why we’re excited to be partnering with Keith and the skiKrumb team,” says Mike Clarke, Founder of Mountain Lifestyle Outlets“With the best selection of rental and purchase equipment to help you ski, board, and ride, and now a pick-up point for skiKrumb devices, there’s no better place for Okanagan families to get ready for their day on the slopes than Mountain Lifestyle Outlets.”

skiKrumb provides location updates every 10 seconds, as well as daily video replays, including highlights from the runs you’ve skied throughout the day. skiKrumb’s capabilities are unparalleled in the outdoor equipment industry, thanks to a unique partnership between hardware, software, and resort infrastructure. That level of collaboration is the backbone of a seamless experience for users, and a much more trusted and durable device for parents, when compared to other GPS-enabled trackers.

In addition to being available for public rentals at both Big White and Apex Mountain Resort, skiKrumb is also the provider of GPS trackers for Big White’s Ski & Board School, providing GPS tracking devices for all children and youth skiers / riders while they are taking lessons.

skiKrumb has been given to every child taking lessons since opening day this year, and will continue to be used by BWSS students throughout the 2023-2024 season, complementing the in-depth procedures and practices within the Ski & Board School.

MacIntyre added: “We worked with Big White last season and developed a registration and scheduling software for the Ski & Board school. Working closely with them, I’ve seen first-hand the fantastic and talented team at Big White. I’m impressed at the quality of their instructors, and the efficiency of getting hundreds of kids out on the hill at once is amazing. Now, with skiKrumb directly connected to the registration system, BWSS staff can see all of their classes live on the mountain.”

With live locations, alerts and more, skiKrumb works directly with the BWSS registration and scheduling system, giving the ski school a best-in-industry solution. skiKrumb has also introduced daily video replays, so parents can enjoy watching the lesson with their children.

The skiKrumb mobile companion app is available for download in the iPhone App Store and the Google Play Store. Starting today, skiKrumb is available for both daily rentals and season’s passes at Big White Ski Resort.
