After their recent graduation from the 12 week Boomtown Boulder incubator program, the Alpine Media Technology team is now poised and positioned for a huge 2019/2020 ski season ahead. With another financing round closed, new resort partners at the table, a technology platform that upgrades by the day, and new key hires made- Alpine Media Technology is ready for their catapult out of the start-up world as they enter their next season of operation.
Founders and operators Freddie Peyerl, Gerrit VandeKemp and Jeff Conners lead the way for this well equipped and veteran team. Peyerl (PhD, MBA) draws on his formal education from Harvard University and 15 years as a partner of Boston Strategic Partners to lead AMT as it’s CEO. VandeKemp, a former Marine assigned to Presidential Security for the Clinton administration and 15 year veteran of the financial service industry, oversees AMT’s revenue and operations is the Chief Revenue Officer. Heading up product development as the Chief Technical Officer is Connors, an electromechanical engineer with nearly 20 years of experience at some of the biggest names in the Aerospace industry such as Boeing and Darpa.
Rounding out the team is Nick Haggard and Garin Gustafson. As a top producer for over a 10 year period at iHeartRadio, Haggard has the experience and know-how to maximize advertiser value for his clients as AMT’s Director of Sales. Gustafson, the Director of Marketing, has been on both the buying and selling side of media for his past start-ups Absolute Poker and Fuel Montana Media.
Now with a tried and tested technology, the aim is to scale across North America partnering with the nations top ski resorts to deliver this one of a kind digital solution. Richard Thompson, a 40 year pioneer in ski industry advertising, will assist in brokering new ski resort partners. While the company has an agreement with Alterra Mountain Company which accounts for approximately 1/3rd of skier days in the US, Alpine Media’s solution is scalable for resorts of any size looking to upgrade their guest communication systems. Winter Park, Steamboat, Shawnee Peak and Wachusett Mountain are all early partners and champions of this platform and are increasing both content and displays for next season at their respective resorts. AMT is currently finalizing long term deals with additional resorts to be announced in the coming weeks.
While the Epic and Ikon passes were game changers, the All mountain Platform (AMP) from AMT also adds incredible value for skiers and riders looking to maximize their time on the mountain as they search for groomers, open lifts and trails, events, weather conditions and more via an 8 minute content loop that updates in real time throughout the day.
As AMT evaluates new partners for next season, now is the best time for resorts, agencies, and brands to reach out and connect to learn more about this revolutionary technology.
