2014 SnowBound Magazine
Welcome to the inaugural edition of Snowbound! We are proud to present this new resource for the ski and snowboard community. It’s designed to help groups plan a seamless winter vacation, with insider tips and advice from some of the leading authorities in the winter sports industry. I hope you find this edition both informative and inspiring!
Throughout the magazine you’ll find articles and tips from insiders who have a unique perspective on not only where to ski, but where to hang out after a long day on the slopes, how to negotiate air fares in an overly complex environment and new technology aimed to make group planning easier. Our destination partners are found in the back portion of the publication with individualized Site InSpections that help answer questions you may have when considering new destinations or looking to visit an old favorite.
While Snowbound is new, our company and history in the ski market are not. Our parent company, Premier Travel Media, publishes eight unique travel magazines, websites and e-newsletters serving the niche group travel industry. All told, we reach over 130,000 travel buyers who plan student trips, religious tours & retreats, reunions, group tours, sporting events and yes, ski & snowboard trips! For the past eight years we have published the Chicago Metropolitan Ski Council’s publication, Ski + Ride (formerly known as Midwest Skier). While that magazine is alive and well, Snowbound complements Ski + Ride with a national flair and reach towards a larger network of winter sports enthusiasts.
See you on the slopes,
Jeff Gayduk, Publisher
