I was at Powder Mountain on 3/24/19 to shred some pow with my buds and tryout my new goTenna mesh units, but after an hour at the resort and having issues trying to get our messages between the two goTennas, I asked a mountain host and he tells me they removed the goTenna nodes and are using some other type of radio system. It was very disappointing to hear this as our two groups split up and were trying to contact each other which was an epic fail as we had more failed messages then received. I know the terrain at these places is a big issue, but after finding no other hops listed in the messages it was obvious that we were the only ones with goTennas.
The other issue is cell phone coverage from the big 4 sucks in most of the resort when you get into the valley’s. AT&T has a tower next to Hidden Lake Lodge and Sprints antenna are attached to the Hidden Valley lodge and makes the building look like crap with those big ugly antenna and all the coax going to the radio’s behind the antennas.
Great place to shred and ski, but if you get hurt you better hope someone will hear you and get Ski Patrol for you.
Also could someone from goTenna remove these repeater nodes from the Powder Mountain node map, so other goTenna users aren’t fooled into seeing all these nodes and think they will have great goTenna coverage here.
