There are thousands of websites out there on our beloved white powdery activities but there are few that we really tip our hats to. Here, we have done our research and can advise you on the best sites to save you time and effort. We based these estimates on 5 elements:
- Quality of content/information provided
- Ease of find
- Visual presentation
- User comments and feedback
- Number of adverts
Top 5 Winter Sports Websites:
So lets get cracking shall we. Here’s our top 5 best winter sports websites:
At number one, we have welove2ski. This was one of the most helpful and informative websites around. We found the level of detail and information to be, not only voluminous but genuinely helpful. Their content ranges from intricate knowledge of ski resorts, through to weather forecasts and gear guides. They also have a section on ski deals. So if you are performing some research around where to take those dusty skis then there is a wealth of offers from a plethora of holiday suppliers. All that alongside their lack of adverts and excellent reviews they were exceptionally easy to find and navigate throughout their content. We would pop this one in your favourites tab if you are true snowhead!
At number two, we have Mpora. A great looking website that has huge amounts of information and blogs. However, we wouldn’t call them ski specialists. They do have other sections on adventure, outdoors, cycling etc with some of the content, whilst interesting and readable, it is more relatable to tabloid journalism than welove2ski. With no search function or easy way to navigate the winter sports-specific content, we found it difficult to find the real gems hidden within (but they do exist). For example, there are some great blogs, such as the Top 10 Ski and Snowboard Games on the App Store, which we love.
With an also glorious lack of in-content advertisements, this is a well-deserved position at number 2 and we would certainly recommend a visit.
If its cheap and easy you are after then Snow Carbon provides great info on all means train travel and winter sports. They go into real depth reviewing all resorts and packages thoroughly to give the readers an outstanding level of knowledge prior to their trips. They’re also big advocates for minimising peoples carbon footprint, which we love! With no adverts, strong reviews and beautifully crafted content, the only reason this is not higher in our best winter sports websites is that it is highly train specific and does not cover the whole picture for other travellers.
4.Ski Club Great Britain
At number 4, we have Ski Club Great Britain. These guys have a knowledge of winter sports that is almost unrivalled. Their website is visually stunning and at a top level very easy to navigate. The content is nicely broken up into Snow & Weather, Ski Resorts, Discounts, Info & Advice and Holidays, which allows you to direct yourself exactly where you wish to go. Unfortunately, you do struggle and it can easy to get lost when reading further into articles.
That being said there is also a large amount of sponsored content and adverts. However, we do love the inclusion of videos in the majority of their content and feel this is a really positive addition to their site.
We like to refer to these guys as the Reddit of the winter sports world. In a similar layout and style to Reddit, this large winter sports forum has been around for years. Populated by users of equal snowy madness it contains some exceptionally useful information alongside some very honest reviews of resorts and holiday providers. Some large problems do exist, however, if you are not a registered user or are not familiar with how to use and navigate forums such as this then this probably isn’t the website for you to find some quick holiday tips.
If you are looking for uncensored unbias information on the winter sports world then this the place for you.
