Slopes! Magazine
New Mexico’s Winter Adventure Guide has been published annually for
over 20 years. In 2008 the magazine was redesigned as Slopes! and given an
editorial makeover. Print distribution has increased to 80,000 copies. From
September though December, Slopes! is distributed through rack programs and
trade shows in New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma and nationwide via direct
mail requests and Department of Tourism fulfllment programs. The new online
e-magazine has received tens-of-thousands of pageviews this season bringing
our estimated readership to well over 100,000.

Slopes! advertisers reach a broad demographic of prospective winter
sports toursists at a time when many are beginning to plan their winter
vacations. With so many ways to participate, Slopes! has a proven method for
reaching new and returning visitors to New Mexico.
SkiNewMexico.com
The SkiNewMexico.com website was re-launched in October 2009 with a
suite of new features, a friendly new design and an improved advertising platform.
Traffc has increased more than 30% over the two previous years and the typical
visitor now spends more than three minutes on the website. Page views have
increased an astounding 700%.

Our new vertical web banners doubled in size to 160 x 600 pixels, and were
given more prominent page positioning along side our content. Between
October and January, web banner advertising reached over 336,000 impressions
with nearly 7,600 click-thrus. Hundreds more linked through our Member Listings,
Business Directories and Great Deals pages. Since web banners are packaged
with magazine ads, it’s diffcult to predict which media might be more valuable
to advertisers. The benefts of both are enormous.
Opt-in / Social Media
Much of the increased traffc to SkiNewMexico.com can be attributed to our
appearances at the Texas and Oklahoma State Fairs in 2009. But it’s likely that
most new visitors were lured in by our Daily Snow Reports—available on the
website, by email, RSS and Twitter. More than 3,200 people are pinged daily.
Ski New Mexico’s social media following has evolved steadily since last
summer. The Twitter page has over 700 followers and averages 9 new followers
per day. The Facebook fan base doubled to over 850 fans between October and
January and grows at an average of 4 new users per day.

Great Deals posted to our website are also posted to our Facebook page
and tweeted @SkiNewMexico. We’re always exploring new methods to
share New Mexico’s diverse winter sports offerings and are working with members
and advertisers to enhance everyone’s social media presence.
