General Ski Sites

One of the best places to start looking for anything is the Yahoo! Ski Page.

GORPGORP (Great Outdoor Recreational Pages) has a Ski Guide.They have some really good reviews that really tell you about a resort and aren’t just a bunch of hype.

GORP's partner, Away.com, also has a Ski Guide. Here you can investigate ski resorts by interest or region.

Ski TownPlanning a ski trip? Ski Town has some of the most complete listings of ski resorts in North America. The Ski Town Resort Guide shows the resorts on a map so you can figure out where everything is, which is nice if you plan to do multiple resorts on one plane ticket.

SkiSite.com Ski Site is also a complete ski guide. They list ski resorts, conditions, information about the resorts, and ski clubs. They also link to trail maps and directions. If you need a ride, you can post a request on their ride board. They have reviews and the site is very uncluttered and easy to navigate.

On The Snow.com On The Snow has some good write-ups on the ski resorts. Choose a state and you’ll get a state overview.  For most resorts, they have a summary profile, lift and run information, links to resort web sites and trail maps, and reviews.

Ski Europe.com For ski trips to Europe, try Ski Europe. They have information about the resorts, the towns, as well as ski and weather reports.

Three skiing magazines, Ski and Skiing and Snow, have combined their resources into one website Ski Net.com. You can read the different magazine's reviews of gears and resorts. It's good to get just reviews without all the hype. They have lots of other stuff also.

Ski Central.comThe consummate ski list is now Ski Central and they still have us listed. Their pages include ski reports ski resorts, ski equipment, ski techniques, trip planning, and contest.




Go Ski.comGo Ski is a little more global with information on resorts worldwide. (Did you know they have skiing in Bolivia?) Never heard of that ski resort that someone in your club is pushing? Get the schematic for the area and find out what you're getting into.

Snow Reports

Recreational Sports Network.com


The Recreational Sports Network is where you can find the weather and ski reports from resorts in each state and around the world.  They have the 5-day forecast for most major ski resorts.  RSN also has neat videos, ski cams and other total unrelated sites.

 

Sno Country.comSnowCountry has the ski report for a whole lot of places worldwide.  This is probably the best chance to see ski cams at international ski resorts.  



On The Snow.com On The Snow has worldwide weather reports for ski resorts. They include many of the smaller resorts that the other web sites have missed. You can get the ski reports along with the weather reports. They also have stats for the resorts along with information such as opening day, average snowfall, number of lifts, number of skiable acres, trail maps, and a resort profile.

You can get weather information from Dr. Weather at BestSkiWeather.com.  This site is run by a skiing meteorologist.  You’ll get a more interpretive view of the weather rather than just “cloudy and high of 30.”  He has a lot of weather maps and color radar to go with the interpretation.  Click on "New England Weather", "Western Weather", etc. on the left side to get good overview of what is going on in that region.  Long term forecasts and detailed reports cost quite a bit more, about as much as a broadband connection.

Real Conditions.com
RealConditions
has a very clean, uncluttered site (just like their affiliate, SkiSite).  You can get a quick, statewide report then click on an individual resort for more detail.  They can also e-mail you the state report each day for the state of your choice.


Ski Earth.com
Or you can go directly to the ski resort's ski report page at (you guessed it) Ski EARTH.com. This is also a great place to find a ski resort's web page.




Wheather Channel.com
The Weather Channel has the Snow Forecast.  They also have the Snow Quality Forecast so you can figure out if the snow is good for skiing or just slush.
