We are now regularly getting over 10, 000 unique visits per month on PlanetSKI.

Well, we did in June and we’ve just repeated again in July.  Not bad for a ski and snowboarding web site in the summer, and one that only launched last winter too with minimal fuss and fanfare.

So, thanks very much for continuing to look at the site.

As the winter drew to close many people asked us what we were going to do in the long summer months.  Our answer was clear.

We love the mountains in the summer.

Other ski web sites sort of close down or go into hibernation with few changes to the content.

Summer in the Alps

Summer in the Alps

We have been following the Tour de France as it passed through the Alps.

Reporting on conditions in the southern hemisphere.

Covering the developments in the ski industry through the summer months.

We’ve been at the Montreux Jazz festival and the Paleo Festival in Switzerland. 

Sadly there have been a number of death in mountain accidents in The Alps, avalanches down under and accidents involving extreme skiers in the Himalayas.

We have also covered things that are absolutley nothing to do with skiing but we reckon are of interest and fun anyway.

While animal stories seem to be of great interest whether about snow leopards or alpine bees.

For some reason our content editor’s blogs have gone very well over the summer months too even though they barely mention sking or snowboarding.

“I’m not quite sure why people want to hear what I’m up to or my ramblings on various subjects but judging by the levels of hits they do,” says James. “So, thanks.”

Well skiing well into May, roaring round the Alps on a large motorbike, hanging out at the Montreux Jazz Festival, following the Tour de France in the Alps and going to various music festivals while the rest of us are working may be one reason.  He’s now in Corsica for a bit of trekking and chiling out 🙂

We’ll try to keep up the standard for the rest of the summer and then, before we know it, another winter will be here and once again we’ll be out in the Alps again where the action is.

Now, we wonder if all the 10,000 people got together what would happen. Quite a party!

For the spirit of the mountains.
