Skiers & Snowboarders Summer Reading

What to do now that summer is here? Although Alpine Meadows just reported 12″ new and Snowbasin in Utah, has just announced weekend re-openings as long as the snow is lingering, so begins the skiers and snowboarders off season. Since there won’t be much powder or snow making the headlines in the near future and there will be a diminishing of anything related to skiing or snowboard reading available since winter is gone, you still need to feed your snow related addiction, right?

Well, we are here to help you out. We follow some other blogs that we think may be of interest you. Whether its another ski or snowboard blog or just a happenin’ outdoors blog, we want to help you get your snow fix, even if it is 95 degrees outside and all the snow has melted where you are.

MountainFirst up, and you may have heard about “them” already is Unnofficial Networks. I originally began following the site as Unofficial Squaw since I ski Squaw Valley whenever I can and am always looking for a personal on the snow perspective.  Additionally, they now have affiliates in Jackson Hole, Snowbird, Whistler, Stowe & Telluride. Unofficial  always has some choice videos up, whether it’s made in house or picked up off the net. Their huge success flick of the past winter GNAR has got to be the ski video of the year.

For a bunch of snow related news, go to First Tracks!! Included is a growing forum, conditions and ski maps. is not so much a blog, but a running tally of North American Snowfall history. Do you want to know where the most snow fell or didn’t fall, then this is your most comprehensive Snowfall Guide on the net. Included in the snowfall totals are monthly or almost monthly summaries for all of the North American regions.

So go riding, camping, running, paddling, etc and when you are done, come on back and look over these sites. They will be here when you have some down time, need a pow stoke or just want to catch up on the latest happenings in the snow world. Don’t worry, we’ve got some more sites for your viewing pleasure in upcoming posts. Until then enjoy your summer and read on.
