SNOWMASS Known as an intermediate skiers paradise, the extreme and freeriding side of Snowmass Ski Areas 3,128 acres has long been its biggest secret.The Town of Snowmass Village aims to change that with a new website dedicated to Snowmass more radical side.Snowmass is the second largest mountain in Colorado, and it offers unbelievable freeride and extreme terrain, said Wendy Harris, web administrator for Snowmass Villages Marketing and Special Events department. We want snowmassfreeride.com to take on a life and culture of its own and be a free-flowing, user-driven website for a different, more adventurous audience than our main website, http://www.snowmassvillage.com.The new website, designed by Promotional Concepts and maintained by Blue Tent Marketing, is divided into three areas: Parks & Pipes, Freeride and Backcountry.Each section provides detailed information about Snowmass terrain and tips from experts and locals.Additional website options include avalanche and weather reports, music, contests and giveaways, a link to book lodging, and a calendar highlighting appropriate Snowmass events such as the new Winterskl Rail Jam held last Friday, or regional avalanche awareness classes. Users can also post their own photos there.Meant to be an interactive website, snowmassfreeride.com offers riders the chance to post their own Snowmass photos and experiences. Eventually the website also will host video such as helmet cam clips and user blogs. In the summer, the website will switch over to highlighting the summer terrain for mountain bikers and boarders, and summer events such as Blast the Mass and a new gravity mountain bike event in August.Snowmass Village partnered with the High Society Freeride Co., Aspen Expeditions, and the Aspen Skiing Co. to provide the most current content and photography for the website, which debuted last week online.For more information, visit http://www.snowmassfreeride.com.
