TSIL - Latest in Ski and Snowboard News

Who We Are

The Snow Industry Letter, now in its 35th year, offers busy people involved in the snow sports industry a weekly snapshot of important stories that affect businesses and resorts. From magazine articles to google searches to tweets to press releases, there is a abundance of information out there, but it takes time to find it, let alone read it.

What We Do

We cull the most significant stories of the week, boil them down to their essence, and put them into an e-mail newsletter that is sent out Tuesday evening – 48 issues a year, so you always are current.

 You will find - among other things - coverage of:

  • Trends
  • Resort developments
  • Environmental issues
  • Economic impacts
  • Competition
  • People and awards

Some of our recent issues have included topics such as: the rise of multi-resort season passes, along with sites such as Liftopia providing discounted lift tickets; climate change and what resorts are doing about it; recent ownership changes; the increasing segment of backcountry/ out-of-bounds skiers and snowboarders and related safety issues; proposals for development and who is opposing them, and legislation that affects the snow sports industry.

From competitions to controversy, you can read about the movers and shakers, the successes and disasters, the good, bad, ugly and occasionally, the offbeat. If it has an impact on the snow sports industry, we're on it.
