Searching for Snow?
Montana Office of Tourism Offers One-Stop Statewide Snow Report
(Helena, MT) – It’s 6 am on Saturday morning, and you’ve decided to load up your gear and head to the mountains for an exhilarating day of skiing. How do you decide where to go? Sure, you could boot up your computer and click through website after website, checking out the different snow reports for your favorite spots – but that can cut into the precious time you should be spending knee-deep in fresh powder. Wouldn’t it be great if you could access real-time, detailed snow reports for practically all of Montana’s ski resorts with one easy touch of your mobile phone?
Well, your winter wish has come true. The Montana Office of Tourism’s Ski Montana website (http://skimt.com) aggregates the individual snow reports from Montana’s ski resorts so you can compare the latest new snow fall, summit depth, and number of lifts in operation.
“We’re excited to be able to offer Montanans this resource,” said Commerce Director and avid skier Meg O’Leary. “Snow is an essential part of winter tourism and stimulates economic activity. Having immediate, real-time updates for all of our ski resorts in one spot is priceless.”
You can even sign up for a Montana Snow Report e-mail or subscribe to the Ski Area Snow Conditions RSS Feed and receive a daily ski conditions report delivered straight to your inbox.
