Want to go skiing or riding? Skimag.com, and snocountry.com have recently started services to help match skiers with the best mountains and snow conditions. Even weather.com has improved its ski features. Look for a new element, the Weekend Outlook, which will highlight Saturday and Sunday forecasts for resorts closest to a selected location. That feature will complement a useful weather-related service already on the site, the Snow Finder application, which allows users to select from scores of states and cities worldwide, and choose resorts with ideal snow (http://www.weather.com/activities/recreation/ski/?from=homeverticallinker).
