I ran across this April 18 trip report from Ylläs in Finland's Lapland region (a 12-hour drive north of Helsinki, 150 miles north of the Arctic Circle) and was shocked to see freestanding billboards on the actual ski terrain. They're not only for people on their way up on surface lifts, which has a certain logic if you set aside the aesthetic issues:
... they're also positioned for viewing on the way down!
Is this the future of revenue generation at ski areas or a goofy outlier? Consider all the things we originally laughed at (bottled water, water parks at the bottom of ski areas) but now accept as normal.
While the vertical drop is only 1,700 feet, it looks like a fun intermediate area with a nice variety of terrain.
