Since the past winter season skiers and snowboarders enjoy a special service in the ski resort Feldberg. They can store their equipment safely within the new, individually coloured Reichmann depot system. It contains storage possibilities for 660 people in total. Winter sportsmen are able to book the depot lockers via a digital service terminal. The depot lockers have enough space for skies, boards, ski poles, helmets and ski/board boots, which are going to be automatically dried and warmed overnight in there.
The handling of the service terminal works intuitively. After the selection of the right language (four languages possible), the sportsperson decides for the best fitting size of the depot locker (two or four persons) and the lease period (one day to one season). Following to that, the vacationer enters a personal four-digit PIN-code. With that PIN, the depot locker can be opened and closed again. The payment is done directly at the service terminal by cash or by card. Thanks to the self-service concept, long waiting times at the ski service stations are eliminated and make the conventional depot keys obsolete. Due to the fact, that the self-service depot is opened round the clock, the vacationers aren’t no longer tied on opening hours.
