CALL TO VOTE: You choose. Tell us who shone and who stunk. Since 2000 online Snowco has published an independent survey, which asks the public to judge, based upon their experience the level of service that they have received during their visit to a ski or board area. The survey consists of 33 questions relating to the service received from the snow user across 9 departments that make up the front line of a ski and board operation. There are two awards, the NZ Ski Area Service Award for commercial ski areas and, the NZ Small Ski Area Service Award for club operated ski fields.

Snowco reviewed a digital book recently and if you're after some light reading check out The Truth about Skiing and Snowboarding. This 292 page book doesn't tell you how to ski or snowboard but it has absolutely everything else you can imagine about the sport from road rules, nutrition, injury prevention, surviving an avalanche and much much more.

Get into it, take care and have a blast.
