The UK’s leading school ski trip provider Interski has recently expanded its two-way radio system purchasing 60 Motorola T80 Extreme radios from Radio Solutions.

Operating in ski resorts in Italy, and carrying over 11,000 clients during winter months effective, reliable communications are crucial for the company.

Resorts director Buster Cheetham said: “The radios need to be able to function in the mountain environment, on the slopes and in resort with long battery life.

“The T80 Extreme, has been tried and tested by our instructors and we are now expanding it to our resort team. It has proven to be reliable, robust and highly effective.”

He explained that the company already has a two-way radio system in place for their ski instructors, with up to 120 radios being used per week during a busy period, in order to maintain communication channels assisting in the safety, enjoyment and learning of the students.

“The investment in communication tools allows Interski to react quickly to changes in circumstance and to ensure that our clients have the best possible time,” continued Mr Cheetham.

“We have chosen to invest further to allow all of our 60 plus resort team to have radios, which in conjunction with the latest mobile phones makes the communication tools available second to none. All for the benefit of the smooth operation and client satisfaction,” he concluded.

The new radios will be deployed during the coming winter season.
