You gotta find a way to make NS function like Instagram's smaller formats. Like minute clips, Reels, Tik Toks. And we can just swipe through em, Like Imgur on Desktop, Like Reels on Mobile.
Dude I stare at so many sports merely because with swiping like this It's just Hammer after Hammer after High Quality Hammer.
I do admit it Mainstreams Skiing. IG has Mainstreamed Skiing. But Don't just play the IG game. Bring that format back here. Have THE BEST Collection of Clips to ever Grace this Website. IG will never be able to compete. Nobody runs Mainstream IG Skiing that would know more than the NS Archives & Future "Classic Ski Reels."
All I'm sayin is NS could find a higher patronage if you adjust the NS format to include Successful Mainstream formats such as Reels or TikTok. Notice how Those things are Proper Nouns Now. They're that New and that Big.
You got an NS IG, LINK IN BIO, but how many people stop there. "ahhhh I'm not gunna see the website, This here is fine." And they never visit NS.
Give them a reason to check it out, then to never go back.
Better Reels. Better Clips. Better Experience. Because its all RIGHT HERE.
Clips on IG Shine bright but then OUT in a day. because of the sheer non-skiing side of IG. They just don't care but are occupying practically the same space unnecessarily.
(And to everyone, More Jerries Incoming. But I promise you, you were once a Jerry, I was too. Here we are now. We need more Jerries to Grow the Sport, We need excitement in the community to have special community events.)
Also what if we adjusted the format to make NS Accounts like "Rider Portfolios."
It can be used this way already. But It's not organized to easily facilitate that type of approach to this website.
And not everyone has to have one. Just an option window to fill out. A place to Put things. You can have your top favorite 5 edits/ shots right there. You ranked them yourself. So people know what you think your best work is. Basically Tinder. But for Skiers. But it's a detailed-enough portfolio to prove you're not Catfishing people with Camera Angles.
Just a thought
