The snow sports aficionado on creating a new way to plan ski trips
While prepping for a ski vacation starts in the gym, there is still a lot of planning involved when it comes to lift tickets, gear, lodging, and more. “I would sit at my desk in New York City during the winter months and all I could think about was how can I go snowboarding as much as possible,” says Park City, Utah-based entrepreneur Bryan Dunn. “I would stare at the weather forecast and track storms even when I didn’t know if I was going to be able to go.” This passion for winter sports led Dunn to co-found SnowSearch, a new website that aggregates weather forecasts, hyper-local ski guides (with tips such as how to find the best glades or backcountry runs), and allows users to learn about and book all pieces of their trip in one place.
Here, Dunn chats about the changes in the industry and the future of SnowSearch.
