ONLINE GUIDE TO ALL THINGS WINTER HIRES SIX NEW WRITERS

EDMONTON - SnowSeekers has the slopes, cross-country tracks and après ski scene covered like no other Canadian media source, with the addition of six new winter-minded correspondents to its team.

The six correspondents report to Editor-in-Chief Lisa Monforton, the former Calgary Herald and Edmonton Journal travel editor who joined Seekers Media in the summer. The team positions SnowSeekers as an informed voice on all things winter in the Pacific Northwest.

“We’ve got an experienced and enthusiastic team of seasoned writers who love nothing more than to inspire people to get out and experience the best of winter,” said Monforton.

The SnowSeekers team, now 20 strong, will be on the ground all winter, telling our social media followers and readers what’s new at all western resorts. They’ll also pass along insider tips on what’s cool in western Canada’s best ski towns - from food and drink, to festivals and off-slope activities.

SnowSeekers’ newest contributors are based in Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary, Edmonton and Jasper, adding to its current writers, some of whom are based in Pincher Creek, AB, Comox and Rossland, B.C.

The new team are passionate outdoor and nature-loving enthusiasts. They include: Shelley Arnusch, a well-known Calgary lifestyles writer;  long-time travel journalist, Joanne Elves, also of Calgary; Vancouver based world-traveller and adventure writer, photographer, Mark Sissons; widely travelled writer and photographer Steve MacNaull, of Kelowna; Jasper-based outdoorsmen and writer Bob Covey and ski writer Stephanie Lake, of Calgary.
