|Ski Resort Industry Consortium MTN.XML Launches Open Data Reporting Standard |
New RSS standard for weather conditions and operating status helps progress the ski resort industry.
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.
“By standardizing with MTN.XML, we’ll be able to automate the conditions reporting process from all resorts to our more than 4,200 media partners who receive SnoCountry reports,” said Tom Cottrill, president of SnoCountry. “In addition, we’ll all be able to communicate with a clear, concise and consistent message throughout all channels and platforms directly to all skiers and snowboarders.”
The primary goal of MTN.XML is to help share the most important information for the sport that so many love, quickly and easily, to enable the next level of experience changing technology.
"This (standard) will help us push accurate and up to date snow/weather conditions to people around the world," explained Colleen Dalton, Director of Guest Experience Marketing at Mammoth.
MTN.XML is an open standard for ski resort conditions reporting. More information can be found at http://www.mtnxml.org
