6 popular questions directed at Emma, Vail Resorts’ digital mountain assistant
Emma is available to help at 9 resorts, including Vail and Beaver Creek
After a season of testing last winter, Vail Resorts’ digital mountain assistant Emma is in its first full year at nine resorts, including Vail and Beaver Creek.
The idea is to give guests the opportunity to ask Emma anything, from what’s been groomed to nightlife questions. The technology builds upon itself with the more questions it is asked, meaning the more questions Emma is subject to, the smarter she’ll get.
