Officially Launches Drift: Canada Ski Resort News Blog

February 21, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News, a vacation rentals search engine, has officially launched Drift (, a new blog that aims to become the best destination for readers looking for information and advice on visiting ski resorts in Canada.

“There is so much ski resort information and reviews online these days, it can be almost impossible to sort through it all,” says Drift editor Ian MacKenzie, also the new media guru at “This blog allows us to do all the work for our readers, culling out the fluff, and pointing out the gems.”

Drift began quietly in November 2006, publishing news and views on some of Canada’s most popular ski resorts, including Whistler, Big White, Sun Peaks, Fernie, Panorama, Kicking Horse, Red Mountain, and Mont Tremblant.

Yet MacKenzie insists Drift is for more than ski resort enthusiasts. He also ensures a wide variety of other topics are published, including:

· Useful Ski and Snowboarding Techniques
· How To Publish Your Ski Video Clips Online
· Family Planning Tips For Your Ski Resort Vacation
· How Ski Resorts Are Tackling Climate Change
· Entertaining Ski and Snowboard Sites Around the Web

“The beauty of blogging is the ability for us to connect directly with our ski resort guests and owners, engaging in a valuable conversation about all aspects of the Canadian ski resort experience,” says MacKenzie.

Aside from acting as an informative resource for Canada ski resort news, Drift is also an outlet for the expertise of, a controversial, commission-free vacation rentals search engine that connects travelers with independent vacation property owners and small accommodation suppliers through an easy time-saving online alternative to large reservation portals. also offers comprehensive marketing, web-based rental management software, as well as consulting and customer support services to accommodation suppliers for an all-inclusive annual fee.

Consequently, reservation intermediaries and their fees are effectively ripped out of the lodging supply chain, allowing consumers and accommodation suppliers to keep more of their money.
