Once a powerhouse of online ski and snowboard information, OnTheSnow, has announced that they will be shut down for good on July 13, 2020.
OnTheSnow.com was a website that features snow reports for more than 2,000 ski and snowboard resorts around the world, along with live resort webcams, video, resort information and news, vacation packages and deals, user-generated resort reviews and a comprehensive ski and snowboard gear guide.
The company that owned OnTheSnow.com, Mountain News Corporation, was acquired by Vail Resorts in 2010 in that was seen at the time as a massive deal.
We have been proud to provide you with free access to snow reports, resort guides and more, and we are beyond grateful for your readership and contributions to our community over the years.
Unfortunately given the changing media landscape, Mountain News Corporation has experienced financial declines in recent years. With additional economic challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic now facing our business, it is not financially viable to continue operating.
Mountain News Corporation and our OnTheSnow and Skiinfo websites will stop operating on July 13, 2020. We will explore the possibility of selling, partnering, or contributing assets to another media outlet if there is an opportunity to allow for a consistent or enhanced online experience. For inquiries about Mountain News Corporation, please email Feedback_OTS@mountainnews.com.
We want to thank our loyal employees for their tireless work over the years to bring great information to all of you. We take comfort knowing that our collective passion for the sport of skiing and snowboarding will certainly live on.
We’ll see you on the mountain.
