Made my trip so easy to plan!

Graham Bendickson30/12/2018
This winter, I went to Japan for a month and wanted to spend part of that month skiing. Powder Hounds made it so easy to find the perfect resort for exactly what I wanted out of my trip: a smaller resort with good skiing but still a lot of Japanese culture and history in the town. I study Japanese in school, so I wanted a resort in which I could use my Japanese, instead of being surrounded by Australians and other english speakers everywhere! Powder Hounds also made it so easy to find a place to stay in the town for a good value. I recommend Powder Hounds for anyone looking to plan their next ski trip, especially if its somewhere you don't know well.

The best ski resort website ever!

Powderhounds provides a wealth of information on many ski resorts all over the world. The detailed reviews of each resort make it my go-to place when doing research for my next ski trip. I really appreciate the un-bias and realistic information.
Keep up the amazing work PH!

Powderhounds website has been going from strength to strength over the years - and is now the stand out best site on the net for snow info.
The level of information, even on tiny town hills, is second to none. I have used the site to find new hills when the weather has turned rubbish and even used the info on recommended lines to find powder stashes and avoid trouble - it literally saved us from riding into a dam in Hokkaido.
I have booked at least 6 holidays based on information from this website. Keep up the great work and thanks a lot.

I love this website!!

EXCELLENT RESOURCE FOR RESEARCHING RESORTS!!!

Bella21/09/2018
We have never skied in Japan before so had NO idea where to even start when choosing a resort. I found Powderhounds were able to answer all my questions/concerns with a small click of the button. I learnt so much about the different resorts/terrain/accommodation options. A really valuable tool. Planning a trip for a family of six with our four kids aged 10-17.

Whether you’re a powderhound yourself or looking for a well-rounded mountain getaway, these guys know exactly what’s up. I’m constantly checking out the ratings and write ups on resorts across North America and these guys have not once steered me wrong. They hype up the hot spots just the right amount but don’t hold back any punches no matter how “featured” the resort is.

The reviews and blurbs are transparent and the best way to prepare yourself for a ski trip out west. As an easy-coaster, I rely on the hounds to guide me through the vast Rocky Mountain system and I will continue basing my travel decisions on their experience and advice. Bucket listing Telluride this year and I am pumped!!! Thanks, Powderhounds, for your hard work and dedication to our ski and snowboard community.

The Ski Travel Bible

I'm pretty new to international ski travel but in the past couple seasons I've been to Japan, France, Italy, Chile and Argentina. I often plan trips very last minute, change my plans based on weather, and travel alone. Powderhounds is my go-to reference for figuring these trips out and making great ski travel decisions. The reviews are honest and very focused on the things that matter the most.

I don't think I would have ever found places like Asahidake in Hokkaido and Mallin Alto in Bariloche without browsing this Web site first. I'm especially fond of the 'how to get there' information on this site--its saved me a lot of trouble while planning last minute trips on the go.

I'm super impressed with the customer service when booking experiences through the site-- I recently inquired about a snow sledding adventure in Argentina and was immediately followed up with to make sure I got in touch with the people organizing and asking if I needed any help.

Love the site--thanks guys for opening up a world of powder!
