This Week on Instagram: A handful of snapshots from skiers on the go

April 3rd, 2012 by

Instagram isn't the fastest growing social media app for nothin'. People are keen to share their experiences in real time, and the rest of us are anxious to see what our friends, and/or people of interest are up to. The fact that Instagram benefits from the strength of the iPhone camera, and allows users to apply one of many neat filters to their images makes it an ideal photo sharing platform.

We thought we'd take advantage of the beautiful images that are constantly being shared on Instagram by people around the industry—posting some of our favorites here on Freeskier.com for your viewing enjoyment. We'll continue the This Week on Instagram series on a weekly basis. Whether you're an Instagram user or not, have a look back at some of the top images that were shared in the past week.
