General overview of SKIMag.com:

Skimag.com is the ultimate resource for the latest news on ski destinations, winter travel, the mountain lifestyle, gear, and instruction. Home to a passionate community of skiers and winter enthusiasts, the website provides original content on everything that’s new and cool in ski country.

Pitches: Keep them short and sweet. What’s the bread-and-butter of the story? Why does it matter to the SKI reader? Cruise around our site for a while so you have a good idea of what sorts of stories we post. And don’t send the story already written. We like to assign our own content and don’t appreciate pre-written pieces.

Length: The most successful pitches are medium- or longer-form (800 words and up). Even better if you can include images or let us know where to get them.

Style: We’re looking for online content from across the ski universe, including adventure stories, athlete profiles, trends and news pieces, resort profiles, event coverage, and more. 

Lead time: The internet never sleeps, so we want stories that are timely, newsy, and relevant. What’s happening today, tomorrow, or this weekend? That’s what we’ll cover.

Titles: Must be catchy and web-friendly. Don’t be too creative—just give the reader an obvious reason why they should click through. We can edit your title so it’s a better fit, but here examples of successful titles:

Dek: A catchy intro that displays right below the title. Here’s where you can get creative and dig into what the story will cover, if you weren’t able to do so in the title.
