Wired makes case for Surfline-style ski service, Joel Gratz lays smackdown
A Wired.com writer recently made a somewhat heated case for needing a Surfline.com-type service in the ski world.

(For example, the writer ignores that Surfline’s primary service is forecasting, not real-time crowd-sourced reporting.)
