Gps for skiers, snowboarders and snowsports like the Flaik Personal Tracking Device was designed to prevent losing skiers in ski school and to make the slopes a little safer. Designed specifically for cold environments, this gps works great for skiers, snowboarders and for all snowsports in general and can transmit its location every seconds over a 15 hour period. The Flaik personal tracking device provides technologies from both GPS & GSM/GPRS so you can check out your speed, distance, altitude and airtime and more after a long day of riding. The data is mapped in real-time using Flaik's web-based Location Software via SMS. Copper Mountain will provide a satellite-based safety net for thousands of ski and snowboard school students this year with the Flaik GPS tracking system. They had this to say,"It's clear that a satellite-based system is superior on a naturally divided mountain like Copper," said JP Chevalier, Director of Copper's Ski and Ride School. "We've looked at numerous technical approaches over the years, and Flaik is the first to successfully integrate mobile technology and GPS to reliably increase performance and safety. Our goals are to provide the best services for our customers today and to enhance the overall resort experience for the next generation of skiers and riders." Here the rest of the press release.
