Welcome to the PisteHors.com forum. A place to discuss backcountry ski and snowboard touring and equipment as well as hiking, climbing and mountain biking. First of all why add a forum? Well people have been asking us for this space for three years. We’d originally resisted as there are some pretty good forums out there:
http://www.snowheads.com/ for general skiing information
http://www.telemarktips.com/ oriented towards Telemark and AT skiing, particularly in the US
http://www.backcountrymagazine.com/ Backcountry magazine’s forum focused on the North American market
to name just three.
However over the last 12 months it has become obvious from your feedback that what was lacking was a ski (and board) forum oriented towards European off-piste and backcountry. A place where you can relax and chat about trips and snow conditions. Exchange avalanche information and discuss the latest gear. It will also give us a place to post articles which don’t fit on the front page.
We are not launching the forum officially until the autumn but if you are already a PisteHors.com member you can post to the forums.
If you have ideas for other group headings or improvements post them below.
