    • Also, you can buy ski/snowboard gear.

  • – Similar to OneTheSnow in terms of information, and layout, SkiReports lets you create customized ski reports for your website or blog. Pick your favorite resorts and get snowfall, base, and trail information.
    • Don’t forget to setup email notification when your favorite resort or region gets new snow (the default is 6 inches, but you can change it).
  • – This site is geared more towards vacation planning, flights, and home rental. If you’re really a mountain junkie, SnoCountry has real estate listings and land for sale.
