Snow Square is a multiplatform for wintersport teachers and the driven wintersport enthousiast. The term multiplatform is in this case a platform that works on desktop as well as on mobile through an application made for mobile devices. (The applications are currently in beta test phase, if you want to join the test team Click here)
On this platform the users can find exercises to improve their skill and bring clients to a higher level in their specific wintersport discipline. These exercises can be sorted in several ways such as discipline, level of experience, the made mistake and whether you want to youse accessories or not. An exercise can be used for multiple mistakes, some exercises can be adapted and some can stay just as they are. Each exercise is provided with an image on which the exercise is represented in several steps, a detailed description of the exercise and the terrain on which you best can practice is added under the picture.
In addition to all these details, the user can give an exercise a quotation. This quotation is used by the managers to see if the exercises are relevant and qualitatively good enough. If an exercise has a bad quotation after 2 months, it is being revised, if it can not be improved it well get removed. The user can also mark an exercise as favourite so they can easily find it back for further use in the future. In addition to the exercises, tips & tricks can also be found on the platform.These can vary from tips about maintaining your equipment to interviews with top athletes and how to train them.
In recent years we have noticed that the new generation of wintersport enthousiasts do not like to be educated by teachers and prefer to teach themselves through online education. For the older generation, which still likes to take lessons, there are still enough wintersport instructors who practice the profession out of passion and are keen to help these people out.
But here too, energy and innovation is sometimes missing and the exercises lack creativity. They prefer to stay with the basics they have been using for so many years. This causes an obsolescent population among wintersport instructors. The new, younger generation that tries to profile itself in this professional field is active, young, passionate and they are happy to share their exercises and knowledge with eachother.
Because of this young influence, we came up with the idea to combine this passion with the youngest modern addictions, the smartphone and the internet. By connecting the teachers to each other and allowing them to collect wintersport exercises at one central point, one creates a community that shares and learns from each other. Naturally, this community should not be solely between teachers, the active driven skier and snowboarder fits perfectly into the list and will therefore form an important part of this community.
After many conversations with wintersportenthousiasts (teachers and all-round active people) and research across Europe, we decided to set up Snow Square. A platform that connects wintersport enthousiasts, regardless of the discipline, skill level or your position on the mountain, everyone is welcome!
Our team consists of a wide variety of people. We have a team dedicated to our full online appearance, they make sure the website and app are up and running. Next to our online appearance is it very important that all the content that appears on the platform is of great quality and ready to be used. This is where our visuals and copywriting team come in the game. They make sure all texts are written and pictures are made so you get a great user experience.
The goal is to connect everyone and ensure that Snow Square will ben THE platform for exchanging and collecting knowledge. Worldwide, people will be able to submit their knowledge of wintersports through a pre-defined form. Snow Square will ensure that all this information is processed into one beautiful entity that fits within the corporate identity. Each user of the platform can submit their own exercises. These will be reviewed by a team of wintersport trainers and developed into a full-fledged exercise, including supporting image, so that everyone can use this exercise in the future or in their own training.
