The SkiLift - gets you to the hill.
Our friend Rich at skilift.org wants everyone here in Canada to know about this service which is free to use and will get you to the ski hill if you need a ride.
We need to be aware about our impact on the earth and this web site will help you reduce your carbon foot print, save some money or simply get you to the hill if you have no other means to get there. It is free to register and then you can offer or request rides to any number of ski resorts in Canada and the US.
Read below for more details and get involved in this great idea and lets get more cars off the road and more people to the hill – we all win.

Welcome to TheSkiLift.org – a carpooling and social networking site for skiers and snowboarders all over the world. The Ski Lift is completely free to users – in fact, our goal is to save you money! You can get someone to split gas, or get rides to the mountain if you don’t have a car that can make it down Vail Pass on a powder day. Carpooling is great for the environment, it’s great for traffic, and it’s a fun way to meet cool people with common interests.
Some of the features:
Carpooling/Ridesharing – fill empty seats in your car & make a little cash – or save money on gas by finding a ride
Global list of ski resorts – we have a very comprehensive list of ski resorts from almost every country in the world with skiing terrain.
User ratings – keep people honest
Required registration – keep out the anonymous craigslist sketch factor
Social Network – search for, befriend and message people – find those with similar preferences to carpool with.
Wall – see what people are up too and catch updates from friends
Reduce total cars on the road & impact on the environment
Increase total visitors to ski resorts
We are working hard to continue improving the site, we want to add the features that you care about most first, so let us know your thoughts!
