Former ski pro and Skeena Heli Ski co-owner, Australian entrepreneur David Freuden, has launched the Snowcomparison.com website this week for skiers and boarders looking to get the most from their resort of choice.
Snowcomparison.com allows skiers and boarders to search for a resort that suits them based on terrain, vertical drop and accommodation prices. The site currently has 2400 resorts in 56 countries with more being added regularly and is driven by one man’s frustration to create a whole world of skier’s joy.
“I was in Prague late last year and wanted to ski some of the intrepid Eastern and Central European resorts but I could only speak English” says Freuden of the reasoning behind Snowcomparison.com.
“So when a local did give me recommendations I was unable to pronounce, remember or spell the resort name. I realized what I wanted was a search engine that allowed me to find the resort right for my style of skiing in a geographical location I would be in. Thus Snowcomparison.com was born.”
The site ensures users can find somewhere new to ski in far away lands with unpronounceable names without getting disappointed when they got there. Search results allow resorts to be seen as a stand alone resort to review on the page or side by side for comparisons.
The site accommodation booking system is powered by The Priceline Group, owners of Priceline.com, Bookings.com, Agoda.com and Kayak.com with the largest range of hotels in ski resorts worldwide so you know it’s reliable, extensive and good value.
Freuden knows his stuff. Born to one of the founding members of the Thredbo Ski Patrol he has spent his life on snow and went on to become a professional skier and a co-owner of Skeena Heli Skiing before selling his share of the start up in 2014, Freuden has a solid understanding of the world of snow as a skier, a traveller and a professional.
