MTN.XML, a consortium of leading ski industry partners, suppliers and resorts, has announced an open xml standard for snow data reporting across the globe.
Incubated by Treeline Interactive, with support from SnoCountry Ski Areas Association and Resorts Interactive, the initiative now has more than 15 organizations working together to implement reporting standards. These organizations include resorts, point of sales providers, industry associations and a range of other service providers including Siriusware, aRes Travel, TrailTap, Snow Park Technologies, Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, Sierra-at-Tahoe and many more.
Why is an open standard for snow data reporting so important? Ski resorts across the world provide data feeds of their mountain conditions and other related details, but many have their own unique format. This makes aggregating conditions and integrating them with media partners, including websites and mobile apps, an arduous process.
Last season, June Mountain entered its second 50 years of operation, but it appears that Year 52 won’t happen for the Sierra Nevada resort – at least for the near future.
