New Functionality at AmericaSkiing.com Allows Users to Share Blogs, Post Photos, Join Clubs, Create Events and much More.

Philadelphia, PA, January 15, 2008 – AmericaSkiing.com, one of North America’s top skiing and snowboarding web sites, introduced recently the first social networking portal exclusively for skiers and snowboarders. This unique portal is the latest to capitalize on social networking as a medium to unite people of similar interests. The site is designed to combine the networking power and capabilities of popular social networking sites, with the shared focus of snow riding.

“AmericaSkiing’s new feature offers a comprehensive forum for skiers and snowboarders to network and plan. The technology on the site allows folks to create profiles, share skiing and snowboarding experiences with photos and blogs, and plan skiing and snowboarding events” says Brian Boyd from Backcountry.com.

In addition to the wealth of skiing and snowboarding resources already available on AmericaSkiing.com, the new portal features interactive capabilities including:

  • Profiles
  • Photo Section
  • Blogs
  • Friends
  • Clubs
  • Events
