Where to Ski and Snowboard has launched a new reporting system for the 2013-14 season — with more user friendly features than ever before, including a new mobile facility allowing you to report on the move.

We rely on reader reports to make each edition of Where to Ski and Snowboard even better than the last. Although Editor Watts, Editor Gill and the rest of the team try to cover as many ski resorts as they can each season — we obviously can’t do it all, so we need our readers to be extra eyes and ears for us during the season.

For the past couple of years we used a system that had advantages to the WTSS team producing the book, but the feedback we had was that it didn’t suit all our readers.

This year we have switched to a new reporting system, re-introducing the popular “save and resume” feature that allows you to do a report in several sessions. The new system is also mobile-friendly, so you can fill in the report form on your smartphone or tablet computer — so you could start filing your report from your chalet, or in a gondola, or waiting at the airport on the way home!

As a thank you, every September we give away 100 copies of the new Where to Ski and Snowboard to our 100 best reporters — all of whom go into a draw to win a fantastic ski holiday in a top Lagrange apartment.

Last year’s winner was Barry Patrick, who has just sent us this picture from Les Gets where he skied with his family last week.

“We’ve just taken the prize holiday in Les Gets at Le Ferme d’Emiguy,” wrote Barry last weekend.

“We had been a little worried about snow conditions but we arrived to heavy snowfall which set up great skiing for the week despite the weather for the rest of the week being more like April than January.”

Don’t forget, too, that you can file a report by email — for information about how to do all of this, visit our reports page.
