With winter very much in effect in the UK, this week’s chosen website is the excellent SkiInfo.com. Created by ski journo extraordinaire – Patrick Thorne – the site offers detailed snow information on resorts around the world.
There are now hundreds of ski resort database sites on the web these days, but what really makes SkiInfo stand out is its excellent snow data.
SkiInfo tells you when resorts are opening, which resorts have accumulated the most snow over the last seven days, which have the top snow depths, and what events (if any) are happening in resort.
Our favourite feature is the ‘Powder Alarm’, which is triggered when a resort receives more than 20cm of fresh snow. The ‘Snow Finder’ is pretty cool to; it adds reported snowfall from the ski resort’s own measurements to forecasted snowfall, allowing you to see which ski resorts will have the best conditions over a given period.
There is also a forum, web cams, ski deals and the ‘skiers lounge’ – a place to meet other skiers and snowboarders – which overall make SkiInfo the most authoritative source of ski resort and snow depth information on the net.
