We start a week of website recommendations dedicated to the white stuff with www.onthesnow.com, arguably one of the best all-rounders for skiing info and advice.

It’s a US-based site, but their resort reports are truly global and we reckon they’re about as up to date as any local services we checked in comparison. You can switch to your local version too, but if you’re still choosing your destination, the .com landing page gives a wider range of destinations. Either way, you simply choose where it is you're heading to the slopes and the site will give the latest weather and snow conditions.

The Gear Guide is a good place to see what’s hot on the piste this season (it’s all about how you look really, isn’t it?) so a few minutes spent here before you travel will leave you well informed and looking the business.

It’s all downhill from then on.

If you have a website that you want to tell us about email us via the feedback form.
