We’re pleased to announce that EpicSki.com has been acquired by Mountain News Corporation, which operates the #1 most visited ski and snowboard website, OnTheSnow.com, and the year-round headquarters for mountain resort information, MountainGetaway.com.
Mountain News Corporation is committed to ensuring that EpicSki.com will continue to be the online home for dedicated skiers and the leading online resource for ski information and community discussion. To this end, we are looking forward to partnering with Joan Rostad, who will continue to manage the site and contribute content, and with Huddler, EpicSki.com’s existing technology platform, to ensure that the community experience remains consistent.
We expect the partnership between EpicSki.com and Mountain News Corporation will benefit the community and contributors by connecting EpicSki.com to our extensive ski industry information and bringing additional resources to the site to continue to enhance the community. EpicSki.com has a proud heritage stemming from its founding in 1998 by AC and built on by Joan Rostad (nolo), the moderators and contributors and we look forward to continuing to build the forum in the future!
Best wishes for a happy new year,
