I am a big fan of Tiffany and her team as well as an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf. I shop, I eat, I surf -- I should pay.

It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

Lakewood, CO (July 26, 2011) - A newly revised website for Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month (LSSM) officially launched today with features that make it easy for consumers to find information on how to get involved in skiing and snowboarding.

 

Built by nxtconcepts.com, the site serves as a key communications tool for the national January initiative that motivates children and adults to learn skiing and/or snowboarding by taking lessons from professional instructors. The URL for the new site is skiandsnowboardmonth.org.

“LSSM is about de-mystifying skiing and snowboarding especially for those who are new to the sport.”

 

The site is divided into six sections including Where to Go, which lists ski areas/resorts, and retail shops; Learn and Improve offers short articles on how to have a positive snow sports experience; Just for Kids consists of short items and links to kid-oriented sites; News and Information features a wide range of topics from partners and other sources helpful to media; Ambassadors highlights world class athletes and other snow sports enthusiasts who want to share their passion for the sports and Videoscontains a selection of action clips from world class athletes, instructors and celebrities.

 

New content will be added throughout the fall and winter.

“Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month is a springboard for family and friends interested in snow sports.”
