WOODINVILLE, Wash., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pathways Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: PTHW - news) today announced that it has signed a contract with Winter Park ski resort in Winter Park, Colorado for the installation of its TIKITBOX(TM) II unattended ticketing system for the upcoming ski season. Winter Park has agreed to purchase four ticketing kiosks to be placed at several primary entrances to the ski resort. As is standard with all of the Pathways Group's products, the contract also provides for transaction processing services.

The system, based on Pathways proprietary eTeller(TM) product line, and more specifically their newly released TIKITBOX(TM) II weatherized kiosk for unattended Point-of-Sale, will handle the vending of Winter Parks' various ski lift ticket products through the use of a credit card. The system is also Smart Card compliant. As the use of smart card payment systems expand in the marketplace, the transition for Winter Park will be a simple software upgrade.
