The Most Advanced Ski CMS on the Market

We spent all of 2013-17 engineering the best Ski CMS on the market. Don't take our word for it. Use the contact form to schedule a demo. Then decide for yourself. We back-up our ski CMS platform with more than 20 years of ski industry experience and a terrific cross-functional branding and advertising team. We'll design and build a custom RWD website solution for your ski resort that engages visitors and generates more revenue. And if you want, we'll help with strategy, SEO, e-mail marketing, social media ... and all the other usual suspects.

Below is a little demo of our ski resort website platform. We work with resorts from coast to coast. They adore our approach to building ski websites. Our team is busy building even more exciting software and marketing solutions. Here Jamie Ippolio, a ski industry veteran and Partner at Dirigo, shows some of the system's features.

The Dirigo Ski CMS was branched from our DirigoEdge 3.x platform. What really makes it special is its newness. While other groups are simply extending the life of older CMS systems built during the non-RWD era (e.g. a Drupal theme with a few ski industry features), we set out to build a truly mobile first solution with the very newest technology. This is from the ground-up 100% Dirigo. We started with a blank sheet of paper and stacks of ideas. We think that this puts Dirigo into a whole new class of resort CMS systems. In the summer of 2016 we released Version 3.0 of the ski platform. In the Spring of 2017 we released Dirigo Ecommerce Solutions—a seamless integrated commerce platform for season passes, tickets, events, etc.

Our platform can be used on a desktop, tablet, or smartphone—which allows for easy updating, scheduling, and editing of most any website. As an aside we call it a platform because it is more than just a website or a CMS. The platform allows for the easy creation of content that can be reused and placed throughout the website. We pull content directly from other systems (e.g. Intopia, Liftopia, and Ryan Solutions) and can mash-up most anything. The Dirigo Ski CMS is fully customizable, which allows us to build it to fit your needs for how you want to update your homepage, events, snow report, etc.

We know just about all there is to know about common problems in the ski industry. We took all that we know and built a turnkey CMS platform that addresses those problems. Don't pay for a one-off solution. Use a system that has already tackled the ski industry challenges. That will leave more time and energy for branding, user experience, and converting prospects into customers.
