Chalets Direct has now launched our Interactive area where users can get sociable!
We have always encouraged user interaction - we created the Solutions Room in autumn 1999, and since then have added more and more areas where visitors can talk to each other, such as the Ski & Board Jobs forum and the Resort Reviews section.
So now we have decided to group all these features under one heading to make it easier for visitors to get around. Our latest addition, The Ski Blog, is also part of this area.
So what's it all about?
Well the Solutions Room is a unique bulletin board where people looking for holiday accommodation can post up what they're looking for. Chalets Direct members can then reply to them to either match their requirements or propose alternatives. As I write,our developers are working on further enhancements of the Solutions Room which will make it more efficient for both types of users - so watch this space.
The Resort News & Reviews section is for you to post up reviews of your favourite resorts. If you had a great time there let everyone know about it and tell us why it was so good. You can post reviews in various categories, including the resort, the ski area and summer holidays. You can also post about the weather and snow conditions, which was used extensively last winter, when snow depths were exceptional. Reviewers can also put up a photo to go with their post, so we had a great gallery of snow pictures stretching from Colorado to Bansko!
Other features in the interactive area are the Ski & Board Jobs message board and the Long Stay Q&A, so if you're looking to spend more than a week or two in the mountains these could be interesting for you.
For jobseekers take a look at the positions on offer, or post up what you've got to offer an employer. And for the Long Stay Q&A, if you're looking for accommodation or need some help you may well find an answer here.
And of course there is the Ski Blog - which we hope will provide interesting information and give you a chance to give us your feedback.
So as autumn arrives, Chalets Direct is looking forward to another great winter season!
