I have never been a huge fan. Really never understood the whole concept.
I can see it as being a potential tool for ski instructors.
Here are several examples. I typically am on the lifts with other instructors by 8:00 a.m. The lifts don't open to the public at that time. Regardless of what our resort reports in terms of snowfall, we typically find the best spots in terms of conditions. I see that as something worthwhile to tweet. A specific example are several of the runs on the front side of Winter Park. Depending on wind velocity and direction, there can be fairly substantial blown in snow......or sometimes it's a bust. Weather is always tough to judge in the mountains. Base temps and mid mountain condition can vary wildly. It is often considerably warmer at our mid mountain in the morning than at our base. Another item that I think would be nice to pass along. Typically there are instructors in the locker room who have driven Berthoud Pass to get to work. I can pass along road conditions, traffic volumes, avy mitigation, etc.
Why do this? Obviously to drive my lesson business. A "value ad" if you will.
Is it something folks would like or is it a waist of time?
