Alamosa, CO (PressExposure) February 19, 2012 -- Anyone wanting to learn how to get started in snowboarding, skiing, and snowshoeing should visit a great new site that has just opened; [http://www.wintersports101.com]
Joe Walker and Adam Lawrence are the co-creators of the site. Adam is more of the winter sport enthusiast, while Joe Walker enjoys more casual winter recreation activities. Neither of them were raised in areas with the abundant winter sport and outdoor winter recreation activities found in Colorado.
"We both came from the mid-west and had very little experience or knowledge of how to get started in various winter sports and winter recreation activities. After moving to Colorado and meeting each other, we started getting out and exploring the fun snow activities prevalent in the area. We hope our site helps others to skip some of the trial and error approaches we had to take to figure this stuff out by providing basic guidance, such as how to dress and what to wear for winter sport activities" said Joe Walker, a co-creator of the site.
It certainly appears they are meeting their goal. While browsing through the winter sports 101 site, it becomes obvious that these guys have put a lot of work into educating and providing useful resources for nearly anyone interested in outdoor winter recreation activities. In addition to the well-written articles, they provide a good number of embedded videos that provide the "how-to" that novices and beginners need. In addition to all of the great info, they also have a section of the site dedicated to helping visitors find great deals on winter sports gear; from gloves and goggles to snowboards and skis! There are numerous links to some of the best deals around for lift tickets and snowboard or ski vacations.
More visitors are coming to the winter sport 101 site daily. Although it only opened a few weeks ago, the word is spreading that this is the site to go to for anyone just getting started in winter sports and outdoor winter recreation. Adam Lawrence, the other part of the co-creation partnership said "For the first time in my life, I am actually enjoying winter more than summer!"
Joe and Adam plan to continue adding more information to their site and welcome comments via the site on what visitors to the site would like to see at their next visit. "We want a person to come to our site and look over the information we provide and then be able to get the equipment they need to pursue winter activities at great prices. We have had fairly tight budget constraints on our personal purchases of winter gear and we get excited when we come across sales and deals to share with our visitors" said Joe Walker.
Whether you are an absolute novice, or you are already starting to explore the excitement of outdoor winter sport and recreation opportunities, this site has something for anyone interested in learning how to enjoy winter as much as summer...or maybe even more.
