Terms & Conditions

Review Approval

All reviews are manually approved to ensure a degree of validation. In some cases, admin may email the reviewer to clarify some aspects of the review to ensure further validation.

The destination must have been visited within the past 12 months.

General T&C

The email you use for submitting a review needs to be the same as the email utilised for member sign-up.

Points Allocation

Admin allocates points of out of 5 for each review depending on its quality in allowing others to research a trip. The opinion portrayed in the review does not affect the rating.

In order to achieve a rating of 4/5, the review must be well written so it’s easy to understand, be a minimum of 150 words, cover multiple aspects and not be uni-dimensional (e.g. just about lift ticket prices, parking, or the equipment rental shop), and outline some pros as well as cons.

For a 5/5, in addition to the above, the review must include photos and/or video.

Here is an example of a review (Steep & Cheap by Powderhounds) that’s scored 5/5.


Ambassador is the ultimate status as a reviewer. An ambassador has visited many places and demonstrated extensive depth of knowledge about powder destinations. To retain the level, a minimum of 50 points needs to be obtained every 12 months.
