World’s Only Ski-Thru ATM Returns with New Rotating Snowboarding Penguin Feature

What’s believed to be the world’s only ski-through ATM, which debuted at Whistler Blackcomb last winter, is back this season with a twist – a three foot high animatronic snowboarding penguin on the roof.

Managed by CIBC bank, the animatronic 3D penguin will spin around on top of the ATM when anyone tweets @CIBC using the hashtag #SkiThruATM.

In addition to the spinning penguin, for every Tweet, CIBC will donate $1 to Alpine Canada, up to $10,000, in support of the country’s three national ski teams: Canadian Alpine, Para Alpine and Ski Cross.

The Ski-Thru ATM, located on top of Whistler Mountain, first opened in  January last year and comes complete with ski pole and glove holders and heating lamps.
