COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. — Copper Mountain has developed an all new on-mountain audio intelligence smart phone application called Sherpa, available for the 2013/14 winter season. Sherpa is the first hands-free, geo-aware mountain guide giving guests access to local expert advice and the ability to enjoy Copper unlike ever before.
Sherpa provides information based on location using a phone’s GPS services. Users simply turn the app on, plug in headphones and Sherpa continuously delivers insider tips, directions and information through voice recordings – all without lifting a finger. Terrain updates include details such as which sides of the trails have fresh snow and which will be groomed, allowing for guests to fully customize their day on the slopes in real-time. Users can also receive information on promotions and event updates including traffic wait times and road closures. Sherpa doesn’t stop there; the application will continue to get smarter as mountain intelligence is shared. Frequent updates to app features are planned throughout the winter season.
Sherpa will be available for free download from the Apple iTunes store on November 1, 2013. Android downloads will be available by mid-December. For the most up-to-date information on Sherpa including a demo video.
Lock in snow days for the 2013/14 winter season with the Copper Season Pass and Copper 4-Pack, on sale now with special early season pricing guaranteed through September 3. Visit www.CopperColorado.com for more information.
Update – Mobile Giving Interface. There is a better solution than “text to send $10″ when disasters like the Oklahoma tornadoes are the story of the day – I’m sure donors would far prefer to send larger donations from their phones to grassroots organizations, where 97% of the gift goes to the cause, than to send a maximum of $10 to a bureaucratic organization where a far smaller percentage of the gift goes to the cause after text campaign fees and sizable administrative expenses.

The mission of When I’m Mobile is to provide a rich, productive and engaging web experience for the online audience, when browsing from a mobile web device; and to extend the providing organization’s image, presentation and content beyond the main website. The challenge is to work within the current limitations of mobile web devices, while providing as much of the expected web experience from the main website as possible.
All When I’m Mobile clients get a QR (Quick Response) Code – like the ones you see above — as part of the service. Unlike most QR codes you see in the wild, When I’m Mobile QR codes always lead to highly-usable, full-featured interactive mobile web experiences.
The When I’m Mobile website detects which type of device is being used and presents the appropriate version. A simple, clean and elegant website, tailored to the capabilities of the device, is the result.
The work we do with our clients brings the character, integrity, personality and branding image of their main website to the mobile devices. Content is shared across all site versions to the extent possible.
