Avant Ski Is Revolutionizing Ski Travel Planning With 55 Insider Resort Guides

Avant Ski, a growing ski media company, recently added the 55th resort guide to its website and will cover more than 70 resorts before the 2021-2022 winter season. Through its network of industry professionals, Avant Ski is enabling skiers and riders to discover new resorts and experience them like locals. “Our mission is to get people on the slopes, experiencing new places and having more fun,” said Founder, former investment banker and mom of two Alli Widman.”We want to make the ‘avant’ as much fun as the ‘après.'”
Before Avant Ski, the only way to find the best runs, hidden powder stashes, and après hotspots was to get lucky and ride the chairlift with locals willing to reveal their secrets. With multi-resort season passes transforming ski travel, a great trip shouldn’t turn on luck. Avant Ski is filling the void between extreme skiing websites and family travel blogs. Whether you’re a novice planning your first trip or a long-time skier visiting a new resort, you’ll find all the ingredients for a successful ski trip at Avant Ski. 
Built around resort guides written by locals, the website provides insider tips, top trails, daily itineraries, and curated après ski suggestions. “Think of us as a credible friend who has been there before,” said Widman. Avant Ski also offers a season pass guide with personalized recommendations, regional guides, gear guides, and exclusive interviews with industry experts. Explore Resort Guides here. 
A year ago, the Avant Ski team was unsure if there would be a 2020-2021 ski season. Fast forward 12 months and Avant Ski has experienced tremendous growth against a backdrop that was entirely inconceivable when Widman started the site in 2018. 
The company is on track to be the premier resource for skiers and riders with exponential growth in site visits and newsletter subscribers. The Avant Ski team has expanded to include more than 20 talented instructors, ski patrollers and enthusiasts with longtime expertise from places like Lake Tahoe, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Vermont and Maine. 
“As we spent time in the mountains last summer, we became confident that skiing and riding would be amongst the best and safest ways to enjoy the winter too,” recalls Sam Handy, Marketing Manager. Avant Ski’s series of articles on Transformative Ski Resort Projects Underway continues to instill optimism that skiing will come back bigger and better than ever. 
After years of declines, the 2020-2021 season ranked as the fifth highest for skier visits since the National Ski Areas Association started keeping track in 1978-1979. “I am thrilled to see skier visits increasing and have such pride in the brand that we’re creating,” said Widman. “It’s been a really exciting year, and we can’t wait for what is to come as travel accelerates this winter.”
