Is this App The New Tinder For Skiers?

The app features chats to help you find new friends on the mountain. Skibuds image.

Ever make it to the mountain on a pow day hours before your friends do? We’re all about friends on a powder day, so we know that can sometimes get a bit lonely. Enter SkiBuds, a new app that promises to connect you with your new best friend on the mountain. It’s kind of like Tinder, but for skiers and snowboarders. Disclaimer: what happens during après with your new friend is entirely up to you.

Jokes aside, the app serves to be a useful tool for connecting you with like-minded shredders not just at your home hill, but in places you might be visiting. It currently works at over 70 mountains, and more are on the list to be added. Through the app, you can even get in on chats for carpooling, or organizing backcountry trips based on your expertise and qualifications. Create an account, list your interests and ability level, and find some new friends to show you around.
