"SmartMountain has been a reliable partner for tracking data for everything from avalanche paths to skier incidents. We love the ability to customize the programming to meet our operational needs, rather than having to adapt our operations to fit the software. In addition to supporting ski patrol needs, Smart Mountain has great applications for infrastructure planning and mapping, as well."

Drew Kneeland, Ski Patrol Director, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort

SmartMountain, developed by Earth Analytic, is scalable to your ski area, small or large. The information you will gain from Smart Mountain will allow you to make more informed decision and provide a clear assessment of risk. Whether it be skier incidents, avalanche mitigation, terrain assessment, patroller performance , on hill work assignments, Smart Mountain provides visual feedback as soon a something happens. You can visualize a day, a week, a group of days or a year of metrics as to when and where they have happened.

Data and Information

Database of record: Centralized and organized data assists in recognizing and evaluating patterns, resulting in more thoughtful planning and informed predictions.

Rapid, intuitive retrieval of current and historical data (accessible on or offsite) improves decision making at all levels of management.

Simple report generation.

Reduces risk and potential lawsuits.

Supports visualization of current and future mountain infrastructure (e.g. Gazex explosives locations, forest thinning, designing new runs, parking, etc.).

The dispatch and risk module leverage Esri’s Survey 123 for ArcGIS, providing an intuitive survey-form, data-driven workflow for point feature collection and reporting. Data collected with SmartMountain Survey apps, which are available for both web browsers and native desktop and mobile apps for standard operating systems, are integrated with one or more SmartMountain modules, providing real-time or disconnected and later synchronized workflows for data collection and integration.

Each ski resort decided what they wish to display on the Dispatch Dashboard including on-hill incidents, walk-in incidents, on-hill refusals,  missing persons, work details for different departments, ski patrol rosters for the day, clearances, and sweeps.
