The Soul of Skiing, Social Networks and Ski Shows

As Americans vote business goes on. In Idaho we see reports of snow at many of the resorts and areas. Make sure to check out the new "Soul of Skiing" campaign from the folks at the Idaho Ski Areas Association. Be sure to check out the sweet resort videos available on the site.

More and more resorts have various social network communities where you can build a profile, add friends, participate in forums, add video and photos and submit blogs reports. Get the inside look from fellow skiers and riders. Here are several groups and resort we have seen with easy to use and interesting communities:
