The internet can be a tool for finding like minded people. We’ve found great ski partners through our forum and others like FirstTracks, TGR and SnowJournal. All the authors of NYSkiBlog connected through NYSkiBlog, and other social media. Let’s face it — epic powder and off-the-hook ski days are more fun when shared with other ski fanatics.

NYSB Social Media
We think Twitter could be a valuable tool for real-time ski conditions reporting directly from the mountains. Twitter is really well suited to getting out updates from the hill, alerting skiers to snowfall amounts, precipitation type, conditions on the trails and in the trees. If you’re skiing and want to share conditions or beta with us, include @NYSkiBlog in your tweet and we’ll retweet it as soon as possible. And if you follow us on Twitter, you’ll see our reports as they’re available.
At it’s core ski blogging is all about the pictures and Instagram is our new favorite toy. It’s a super visual, instant gratification media that we use to push out information in another way. If you’re skiing and want to share photos with us, tag @NYSkiBlog. And if you follow us if you want to see our photo stoke too.
Facebook still remains the go-to social media for most of NY Ski Nation. If you want to keep up with NYSkiBlog the easiest way is to “like” NYSB on Facebook. Our fan page will be the first place we post links to trip reports and photos of the mountains we ski and the places we visit. For your convenience, here’s a selection of NY ski areas on Facebook:
|Whiteface||Hunter||Snow Ridge||Mt van Ho|
|Gore Mtn||Belleayre||Greek Peak||Garnet Hill|
|Hickory Ski||Plattekill||Holiday Valley||Lapland Lake|
|Big Tupper||Windham||Mount Peter||Mohonk|
The NY Ski Forums
The NY Ski Forums are intended to be a place that allows everyone involved with NYSkiBlog to share ideas in a format that is more conducive to exchange than The Blog’s commenting feature. Please register and join us in the NY Ski Forums. For your convenience (and ours), a directory of eastern ski forums:
|Pugski||Alpine Zone||BC Talk||TGR|
|TeleTalk||Snow Jrnl||FTO East||K Zone|
