live streaming mountain cams have consistently been some of the most popular
features on our website since I started working on the Park City Mountain Resort
website around eight years ago. They're a fantastic way to check current conditions from a variety of locations around the mountain. With that in mind, we decided to make an
upgrade to our cams this year by installing our first ever “HD” cam near the
top of the Crescent Lift. The new Crescent HD cam is located just across from
the three support towers near the top of the Crescent Lift and offers views
from Jupiter Peak, to the base to Kimball Junction – and all in “glorious HD” (ok,
that does depend a bit on the quality of your internet connection)!
Visit the Crescent
HD Cam and check the screen capture below to see how the control for the
cam works – it’s a bit different from our other cams – this is the first of our
controllable cams made by Axis:
I also want to provide a few images to show how this camera
was installed. No, that isn’t me clambering around, thanks for that goes to
Brian, I also want to thank Bryan and Ryan from our IS department, Roger from
Peak Mobile as well as the team at HD Relay
for their collective help in getting this cam up and running:
And finally, if you have any questions about our dynamic cams, as well as
any ideas for the cams, please let me know in the comments – thanks!
