Yodel-ing from the rooftops

The system works both indoors and outdoors and is based on the 802.11b high-speed wireless Local Area Network specifications. The 802.11a and 802.11b specifications were created as a universal standard by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and are free to use.

Devices that are outfitted with wireless network cards and adapters, most of which work with 809.11, will automatically pick up Yodel’s signals and bring it to the attention of users. They will have the option of buying time using a special PIN number that is assigned to them.

"It’s not really a new technology, but it’s only starting to catch on in the mainstream," said Rae. "This is an opportunity for Whistler to be on the leading edge of the technology, and really take a leadership role in this area among resorts. It could be a huge advantage for us."
