Dear Reader,

In 1972, Jake and Dave Moe founded POWDER as an alternative to the other skiing magazines. “To us, powder skiing means freedom, with an emphasis, not on how you do it, but just on doing it more,” they said. That’s what we’re still trying to do, 47 years later. While the zeal with which we approach that mission hasn’t faltered, the world around us certainly has. In an ever-evolving media landscape, we want to ensure that we are still serving you, dear skiers, as best we can. 

To help us do that, we need your feedback. We want to know a little bit more about you, what interests you, what you’re looking for, and, importantly, what you’re not looking for. Your answers to the following questions will be anonymous and private. They will simply be used to help us do our job better.

The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete. To say thank you, survey participants will be entered into a Sweepstakes to win POWDER swag and merchandise. Here are the contest rules. Thanks for taking the time. We’re excited to get to know you better.

Powder to the People.
