Ski Nation Mobile App Gets Recognition from The Powder Alliance

Intersog congratulates our long-standing client Ski Nation, Inc. on having their mobile app selected by The Powder Alliance as the official mobile app for the coalition of 13 Western ski resorts. We're happy to have developed and contributed to the success of this disruptive skiing app!

Here's an official press release by The Powder Alliance:

"The Powder Alliance has selected Ski Nation® as the official mobile app for the coalition of 13 western ski resorts. These areas include Crested Butte, CO; Snowbasin Resort, UT; Sierra-at-Tahoe, CA; Stevens Pass, WA; Timberline, OR; Schweitzer, ID; Angel Fire Resort, NM; Bridger Bowl, MT; China Peak, CA; Mountain High, CA; Arizona Snowbowl, AZ; Mt Hood Skibowl, OR; and Silver Star, BC.

Ski Nation allows users to collect a digital ski pin from any place they ever skied in North America.  Skiers and snowboarders who claim a pin from each of the 13 Powder Alliance resorts are automatically awarded a commemorative “Powder Alliance 13” ski pin for their on-snow history.  It can be shared on Facebook, Twitter, and by email. More about mobile app development company.

The Powder Alliance is also conducting a contest to visit all 13 resorts during the 2014-15 ski season.  Skiers and snowboarders that complete the entire circuit this winter will also be awarded an additional ski pin for the “Wild West Powder Quest.”  Each Powder Alliance resort visited counts as an entry to win a variety of prizes.

We wanted a mobile app that would work at all the Powder Alliance resorts,” says Scott Clarkson, VP Marketing & Sales at Powder Alliance member Crested Butte Mountain Resort in Colorado.

We searched for an app that wasn’t proprietary, had an open platform, and is based on sharing experiences. We partnered with Ski Nation because the app is free, it’s accessible to all skiers and riders and it’s very convenient for the user.

The Ski Nation mobile app features updated snow conditions, trail reports, trail maps, photos, and other key resort information for more than 970 ski areas in North America. All ski venues are pre-loaded on Ski Nation including downhill alpine areas, cross-country, and even ski jumps. The list includes major resorts, regional areas, local ski hills, and community facilities.

Download the Ski Nation mobile app from the Apple Store or Google Play ".
