Don't Get Lost
|WiFi Hotspots near Ski Resorts|
|We go to ski resorts to ski or snowboard, but at the end of the day it's nice to relax with a beer and check one's email or get the next day's weather forecast. Several ski resorts have added WiFi to their service over the past few years, and I thought I'd try to piece together a directory of them. Here's what I know so far, and please send me any more that you have observed.|
Generally speaking these are free hotspots. Your list of options, at least in towns near to ski areas, gets a lot larger if you have a T-Mobile or SBC FreedomLink account since you can get access at most Starbucks, UPS Stores, MacDonald's, etc. You should also find that your cellphone's data service is available in most ski areas that have cellular coverage. I was able to use my Cingular phone's GPRS capability in Aspen, Durango, Crested Butte, and Telluride, for example.
- Northstar, CA
- Squaw Valley USA, CA (according to Exwire press release)
- Loveland, CO
- Brighton, UT
- Grand Targhee, WY
The Wi-Fi-FreeSpot Directory lists numerous options in ski towns in:
- California: Mammoth Lakes, South Lake Tahoe, Tahoe City, Truckee
- Colorado: Aspen, Breckenridge, Frisco, Dillon, Steamboat Springs, Telluride, Vail
- Utah: Park City, Sandy,
Plus other great towns such as Bozeman, Taos, Hood River, and Jackson.
