Skiweather.eu Ski resort Representative Network

Open ski resort and snow data is finally here!

This manual will guide you through the steps of maintaining the presentation of your ski resort via the ‘Skiweather.eu Ski resort Representative Network’ (SSRN). The presentation will be available on SkiWeather.eu and our vast network of partners, which includes ski rental, ski transfer, hotel booking and travel websites. Moreover, the data is channeled as linked open data[1] to any third party willing to incorporate the data in it's own interface whether website or app.

SkiWeather.eu is the only ski website which provides ski resort and snow report data as linked open data. We are committed to accurate and high quality ski resort and snow data for everyone.

All of the main functions of SSRN are presented and explained in the following sections.
