What ski towns have WiFi internet access, is it free, and if not free what is the cost?

Wow, I thought the people asking about cell phone coverage were dorks. You just kicked it up a notch! ;-)

Nothing wrong with Wi-Fi. The base area at Shawnee Mt. in the Eastern Poconos will be wi-fi'ed beginning this season. And it's free too (I think)

Alpine Options at Sugarbush has WiFi - hang out in their parking lot about 1/2 a mile from Sugarbush South base lodge. Free - you just have to register.

I believe all of Whistler village has coverage, but you need to buy a card. (Not sure of the price)

Dillon Dam Brewery and some other locations in Summit County have free wi-fi.

Plus there's the usual mix of internet cafes that sell wi-fi access in Frisco, and of course Starbucks/T-Mobile for a fee.

Wi-fi is shorthand for a wireless internet connection. Not real sure what the -fi part is short for.

If you have the appropriate wireless connection card in a laptop/palm pilot or something similar, you can log onto the internet when you find a wi-fi Hot spot --or area served by a wireless network.

Bonni and I ran across then in some real odd places on our road trip last month. Like in a rest area! I suppose it makes some sense to be able to stop at a rest area and connect to work, customers etc.

Yeah, in Texas they are in the middle of putting "wi-fi" into every rest stop on the highways.

That way, the black helicopters and spy satellites can keep an eye on where all of the liberals are.... ;-)

Whistler has 2 providers that cover most of the Village. It's for a fee. Sun Peaks has coverage in the Village Day Lodge and I believe several hotels have it too, not sure of the cost there. Incline Village has several free hot spots, I believe that Diamond Peaks is supposed to be covered now. Those are the ones I know of.

Liberty Mountain will be wired in the lodge this year. It will be free.

Telluride WiFi

Telluride Coffee in Mountain Village Core has free WiFi. They ask you to buy a cup of coffee, but the coffee is good.

In town, I've seen people sitting outside on a bench and snarfing someone's airwaves for free.

Utah...lol "WiFi" stands for "Wireless Fidelity", essentially it means the wireless networking of computers.

Wow looks like a lot of ski towns are WiFi hot and free.

When I go out west I like to leave my computer home and I don't like hotel rooms with TVs. Here on the east coast I may do day trips where I could multi-task during the day providing Wi-Fi is reasonable price at the resort. Reasonable price is around $5 or less for 4 hours of access time. Someday I may need to bring the computer out west to do some work during the week for those important meetings. With recent advances in voice over IP, I may not even need a phone connection.
