There is no way I should be writing about drones as I have no experience, very little knowledge about their use, and the regulations that apply to drones. But the following article written by the professional safety staff at Val Thorens in France makes a lot of sense to me.
I recognize we do things a bit differently from the ski companies in France. The regulatory requirements might be very different, but utilizing technology to enhance mountain operations makes sense and is what Steep Management is about.
I don’t think I can add much as to how the drones are used at Val Thorens, and maybe some of you are utilizing drone technology in various ways at your ski resort.
