In most cases, even publishing the simplest videos takes more time than communicating the same thing with some still photos and a few hundred written words. Even so, video is fun and a valid tool in the communication box. (After all, that’s why they invented moving pictures). Not sure this is ground breaking, but I’m impressed at the effort Backcountry.com put into doing a series of mini-vid reviews for their favorite skis. Below is a WildSnow affiliate sales link of course, gotta pay for that virtual server! But mostly, I was wondering what you guys thought of this style, content and format? Too trivial? Just right? Time waster? Helpful? Let me know. Thanks, Lou
