SklarYo, I do a decent amount of writing about ski travel and destinations, so I wanted to get a better feel for what people actually care about when looking to take a trip.
Where do you typically do your research for a ski trip?
Online, maybe a bit of word of mouth, but I will always seek out proof of what someone has told me.
What kind of things are important for you to find out before committing to a certain location or areas?
I don’t really travel much for skiing anymore as I travel for work to ski areas, but I used to travel a bunch. First order was always the park, then the freeride then price. Always went for places that had all of that, with an emphasis on park.
Is there any info you wish was easier to find?
Park information. It’s gotten a lot better, but reliable park information can be hard to find, especially if it’s a lesser known place. I have often found like “sleeper” parks that nobody knew of but were super sick. Resorts often underestimate the need to market their park product. User generated park information would be sick.
Is there anything you think Newschoolers offers as far as research and info that is unique?
Maybe user generated park information. Also snow conditions and maybe even accommodation aimed at the average NS user.
