With consumers becoming more accustomed to the idea of a mobile wallet and technology such as Apple Pay growing in popularity, it could be argued that the act of carrying physical cash around is gradually falling out of favour with many consumers – especially active ones who don’t want to carry around a bulky wallet plus their smart phone while skiing or snowboarding.
But, it seems that CIBC wants you to ditch digital and go back to good old analog transactions.
Where to find Canada’s first ski-thu ATM
In a new 5 year partnership with Whistler Blackcomb CIBC has installed an 8.5ft high, 4,676lb ATM, complete with glove and ski pole holders, at the top of Whistler Mountain.
The big red money dispenser can be found outside the Roundhouse lodge and is Canada’s first ski-thu cash machine.
Have you seen the ski-thru ATM in person? Are you a digital cash or physical cash person? Let us know what you think!
If money doesn’t grow on trees, why to banks have branches?
