powdermatt.com/ To kick off the list we have this cracking a blog by Matt Mosteller – one year, while his friends were busy getting jobs and settling down, a young Matt Mosteller spent 63 days living in his car so he could ski every day. It’s now 20 years later and he’s still seeking out adventures and sharing his stories. So, it goes without saying that he is just as hooked on powder as we are, having skied now for over 40 years! This epic ski blog covers skiing in the Canadian Rockies. Monthly posts share his newest experiences, resort news and upcoming ski events – it really is a cracking read.
https://stories.cmhheli.com/ CMH’s story book is one of our favourite blogs on this list – with CMH being the world’s largest heli-skiing company, they sure do know their stuff when it comes to all things ski.

http://www.theskidiva.com/blog/ Of course we’ve chosen Ski Diva for our Top 10 blogs again – on doing our research into the Top 10 blogs we’ve noticed that the forums tend to be quite male orientated so this is one for all our female skiers. ‘SkiDiva’ is the leading online community for women skiers run by passionate sportswoman Wendy Clinch. Focusing on the latest gear, best techniques, trendiest resorts and current ski conditions; this blog is a great source of information for all “Divas” with the same passion for ski.
http://wildsnow.com The depth of content on mountaineer Louis Dawson’s blog, WildSnow, is unbelievable and makes for an excellent read; we’d be crazy not to list it on our top 10 blogs again. Dawson is well-known amongst the backcountry skiers and is an extremely valuable source when it comes to all things skiing – and there’s now a podcast too which is definitely worth checking out!
