How to contact WildSnow.com

If your message to WildSnow.com is a question that can be answered in public, you MUST leave it as a blog comment — that way our entire community can benefit from (and contribute to) our communication, and we will be more likely to respond in detail. We receive FAR too many emails to answer every one as personally and in as detailed a fashion as we’d like, so we’ve had to go with this policy.

If you are promoting a product, please think TWICE about what you send us. If you email us anything related to resort skiing, we will report you as a spammer to Gmail. Ditto for anything not related to backcountry skiing. We do not accept adult content or gaming advertising.

More, if you are seeking to trade blog content for links, we don’t do that. Period. Again, if you email that sort of stuff, we will report it as spam. Likewise, we do not engage in the archaic practice of website link trades, so please refrain from sending us link trade requests.

To find a blog post appropriate for your comment, please use our search function (in sidebar to right, or in banner area at top of page). Or use Google site search by typing the words site:wildsnow.com (with colon) before your search phrase, that will force a google search of only Wildsnow.com. If you can’t find an appropriate post for your comment, just use one of the more recent posts and don’t worry about being off topic.

Our prefered method of unsolicited contact is Facebook. To contact us via Facebook please leave a private message on the WildSnow Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/WildSnowcom-72204567532/

To email WildSnow.com, please prefix the characters in the image below to the +wild@gmail.com suffix. FOR EXAMPLE, if the image said “hello” the email address would be hello+wild@gmail.com — you must do this exactly or we will neither receive nor answer your email. You must include the + character and the word wild.

To email, please append above text to +wild@gmail.com

We use aggressive spam filtering. Please include something descriptive on the subject line of your message, and if you don’t hear from us in a few days it is possible your email got blocked by our spam filters, or you are sending us an email that does not conform to the guidelines above.

Thanks so much for your comments and messages.
All the best, the crew, WildSnow.com
