8 Twitter Accounts Skiers and Snowboarders Should Be Following

If you enjoy spend­ing time on the moun­tain and want to be in the know about the lat­est deals, sick videos, and oth­er goings-on with­in the ski and snow­board com­mu­ni­ty, then here are some of the Twit­ter han­dles to keep your eye on.

The Yin to Freeskier’s Yang, Snow­board Mag­a­zine shares an ungod­ly amount of con­tent (typ­i­cal­ly between two and three dozen posts per day) about every­thing from snow reports and gear dis­counts to fea­ture inter­views with some of the pro scene’s most elite riders. 

If you’re look­ing for the lat­est news from the pro snow­board­ing scene and pro­files of the hottest rid­ers on the cir­cuit, then World Snow­board Tour should be on your radar ― espe­cial­ly as we near the Win­ter Olympics in Sochi. 

Snow reports, break­ing news, gear rec­om­men­da­tions, superb video links―it’s no won­der Freeski­er Mag­a­zine has amassed more than 35,000 Twit­ter fol­low­ers. Freeski­er also posts links to new arti­cles as soon as they’ve been pub­lished on the mag­a­zine’s offi­cial site (which is often).

Liftopia owns and man­ages the largest online mar­ket­place in the ski and snow­board indus­try. Their spe­cial­ty is dis­count­ed lift tick­ets, but the Twit­ter account also posts links to cool arti­cles and blog posts from around the Web.

MPORA runs the extreme sports gamut, but dur­ing the win­ter months this han­dle is almost exclu­sive­ly devot­ed to ski and snow­board-relat­ed con­tent. Posts are a mixed bag of videos, arti­cle links, and user sur­veys, sup­ple­ment­ed with plen­ty of con­tests and prod­uct give-aways. 

For a look at rid­ing trends and con­di­tions across the pond, this han­dle from Europe’s most pop­u­lar snow­board­ing mag­a­zine makes for inter­est­ing, often humor­ous read­ing. Onboard also posts a hand­ful of new video links each day, both from the pub­li­ca­tion’s offi­cial site and else­where on the Web. 

If you’re inter­est­ed in a cus­tomized ski­ing vaca­tion pack­age, Ski.com can help you plan a trip to more than 100 resorts world­wide. In addi­tion to the lat­est news on dis­counts and deals, this account reg­u­lar­ly posts some of the sick­est ski­ing pics on Twitter.

Although not sole­ly ded­i­cat­ed to ski, gear porn lovers will love this han­dle. They’re known as one of the author­i­ties (if not the author­i­ty) for out­doorsy gear reviews, pre­views and prod­uct tests.
