Love this website! We used to plan our recent trip to France and the information was completely spot on. I really appreciate the ranking of each resort against cost, difficulty and all the other factors that helped us to make an informed choice about where we stayed. We stayed at 3 different resorts for a week each and were not disappointed with our choices because we were informed by this website. Thanks to everyone who works tirelessly to make it relevant and current.

Great site to find a ski resort

23/02/2023
I really enjoy this site. While I don't agree with all the ratings (nobody would because everybody has a different experience), it is great to have as a baseline. One funny thing I found was the ratings for Taos in NM. I didn't understand why it had a rating of 2 out of 5 for advanced skiing and then 5 out of 5 for Expert and Extreme... That is until I went to Taos... The advanced terrain was limited, but the expert terrain was bountiful! After that experience, I don't question Powerhounds data. Thank you Powderhounds for the great site!

Silverton ranking kills Powderhounds.com credibility

MC
23/02/2023
Silverton is not a ski area. Ranking it at all, much less ranking it as Number One for Powderhounds in the USA, destroys the credibility of your website. Have you guys even been there? Have you read your own user reviews on Silverton? The place is an insult to true powderhounds. Now I can't take any of your other worldwide suggestions seriously. Please get real!

Clear, EXTREMELY thorough, no-bullshit beta for real skiers not just party animals masquerading as skiers. Hands down the best resource out there for anyone who loves face shots outside the bedroom.

Also, these guys are pretty good writers and deserve some credit for sneaky rhymes like this:

“This is the roof of Hokkaido where it gets socked in, it snows, it blows, it’s exposed, and the Kurodake ropeway is often closed.”

My go-to resource for planning international ski trips

Justin
21/01/2023
I have been using the Powderhounds website as a resource to plan trips all over the world for about 5+ years and have found the information to always be on point! Whether advice on how to plan for and around weather, where to stay, or where to find the best lines in/out of bounds- they have never steered me in the wrong direction. I am more of a DIY and solo traveller, so I have not used any of the recommended guides or services, but I would be 100% confident when I do.

Amazing Ski Resource Website

04/01/2023
This website provides awesome resources for skiing enthusiasts around the world. I have learned about and visited so many new resorts throughout the world because of this wonderful website. The booking options are great and accessible from the main site. It also does not ignore the smaller resorts that may not get the recognition that a Vail or Whistler would. The website interface is very good and I look forward to using this website for future ski trips and new adventures,

Information on website is fantastic BUT I’ve had a terrible hassle with the accomodation links using Agoda. Last minute cancellation and terrible service. Powderhounds can do better than link up with Agoda.

I have used powder hounds to organise a trip in Hokkaidō. Without the information they have available it would have been almost impossible to make informed decisions.

So much great info about all the areas I'm considering travelling to. No other website compares, or even comes close. Thanks for the regular updated information too.
