Can the Featured Unofficial Guides Be Changed?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I've noticed that the same three places have been featured at the top of the Unofficial Guides page for well over a year (2, 3?).  They changed a bit when the whole thing first started but once they settled on Jackson Hole, Whitefish, and Gore they have stayed static.  There are other places that also deserve to be featured IMHO.  How about a change?

I just put three pics/links in place when I moved them all last September/October. They're a slight PITA to change, but I agree they should rotate some. Suggestions for some new features?

Given that the 2015 EpicSki Gathering is at JH, probably worth leaving that one.

 

Finndog updated Steamboat recently.  A good one for families and mixed ability groups thinking about their first trip out west.

 

The MidA Gathering is at Blue Knob.  Might surprise some folks to know that there are big bumps to be found in PA. ;)

Sure:

 

Castle

Telluride

Blue Knob

Purgatory

Bear Mt.

Snow Summit

Sun Valley

Timberline, WV

Squaw

Wolf Creek

Snowbird

Stevens Pas

Mt. Baker

Snow Basin

Bretton Woods

Beaver Mtn.

 

All of these have plenty of pictures and sometimes videos so that we can get a feel for the look of the place, and there is also lots of text to tell us details. I'll bet I've missed some.

Good suggestions. It's now been updated to keep JH, Blue Knob replacing Gore, but Steamboat didn't have any images, so I decided to use @Posaune's Stevens Pass guide. Check it out.

Thanks guys!  OK, I have to load some up then.  I need to see about that.  I was planning on taking some better shots of the mountain this coming season.  Right now they are pretty much action shots in the trees.

FWIW, I plan on rotating some of the Unofficial guides on the site wide features on a regular basis.

There are also links to the UGs on the Ambassador Roster.  One way to find the Roster is to go to the homepage of Resorts, Conditions & Travel.

 

Using the UG link in the menu bar works fine, but the UGs cannot be sorted except by creation date.

They can be sorted by most views, creation date, and most recently edited.  You can find this just under the blue bar on the left that says "Add an Unofficial Guide."

Forgot about that.  Most Views might be useful for someone looking for a UG, but the others don't really help an average member much who is looking for a specific UG.  I like the Ambassador Roster because anyone can quickly see which resorts have a UG.
