Welcome to PG 3.0

PowderGuide with a new look

by PowderGuide 10/23/2017
Hooray, the new site is here! We are delighted to present PG 3.0 to you! has grown over the years from a small hobby project to a fairly large platform. We have repeatedly discovered just how large and complex this - let's say "organically grown" - construct actually is when it came to modernizing the site. Our brave programmer Simon spent the summer working on this mammoth project, supported by the equally brave graphic designer Thomas and, of course, the PG team.

In addition to a generally more modern look, it was particularly important to us that the site should also be usable on mobile devices. Last year's user survey was a strong impetus for this. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all survey participants and all users for their patience with the somewhat outdated old site. We hope that the experience is now more enjoyable and functional on all devices. Of course it's nicer too, thanks Thomas!

What's still missing

We are still working on some of the features known from the old site, especially from the "My PG" section - we will gradually add more and more. However, all of the existing features will basically be retained.

Don't worry: The weather service including new snow maps and SNOWGRID will be activated when there is proper winter weather and can then be found under the Weather menu item.

The new CR input should hopefully be intuitive, but CR users will receive separate instructions on how to enter it.

The content of the old site has of course been transferred to the new one. In the magazine alone, that's around 1000 articles, plus the many CRs, forum posts, user photos, etc. We may have cursed a little here and there in view of the masses of data that had to be shifted, but the joy of the project clearly outweighs this.

If you find any mistakes, you can keep them

Alternatively, please send an email to web (at) powderguide (dot) com or comment on this article. We have already tested a lot, but we have certainly missed a few things - we ask for your indulgence if something does not work perfectly yet. Please specify browser/device and describe errors as precisely as possible, we are sometimes a bit slow on the uptake!

Unfortunately, we lost about a week's worth of forum posts and article comments during the rebuild. Please let us know if you miss any specific posts in these areas.

We hope you enjoy PowderGuide 3.0 and look forward to the 2017/18 season!
