THE SKI CHANNEL: NEW RESORT RATER APPLICATION



A guaranteed match... the all systems go "The Ski Channel"--- gives web surfers on this site- a one stop way to get the 411 on everything mountain related that a snow bunny or hare could want to know.



THE SCOOP:

An algorithm that functions like a Google search (easy to use for the Luddites out there)---- that breaks it down---including "expert's opinions within their fields of expertise higher and then blends those with ever changing consumer ratings and hard data like annual snowfall, uphill capacity, bed count, etc. to create the most accurate analysis of what resorts a consumer should choose to experience." THE LINK:http://www.theskichannel.com/resort-rater THE RESORT RATER.

Travel details hit on include what's important TO YOU---like the best resorts with an airport, daycare, ski school, blue runs, dining etc. And fast too, considering that the Resort Rater ranks more than 500 resorts for those specific search criteria.

PLUS:

· Up-to-date weather and snow conditions
· Lodging information
· Insider tips from renowned skiers and boarders like Lindsey Vonn and Mike Douglass, who are knowledgeable to a particular resort
· Dining recommendations
· Shopping information
· Run and lift information
· Resort Twitter feeds



WE LIKED THE the website in general...loads fast, and with a humongous amount of stuff on the home page. The Resort Rater is a tab  under the header near the top.
