The 'Snowlifter' autonomous passenger drone concept has been designed by Martin Rico for Imaginactive as a flying vehicle that would offer winter sports enthusiasts with an easier way to get around backcountry environments. The shuttle-like drone offers space for up to eight passengers at a time and could easily be used in place of traditional helicopters for transporting skiers, snowboarders or climbers.
The 'Snowlifter' autonomous passenger drone concept works effectively to transport adventurers, but could also be used as a first response solution to keep explorers safe in the event of an emergency. The vehicle can intuitively pick up passengers at low altitude locations and quickly whisk them up to higher drop-off points to decrease the amount of time they spend commuting.
