SkiSoutheast.com, HighCountryOutdoors.com, HighCountryWeather.com and OntheMtn.com to become an integrated year-round network of outdoor news and more…
May 20, 2013
BOONE, NC – Mike Doble of SkiSoutheast.com announced the addition of Tim Bahlke of Greensboro, North Carolina to its management team. Tim was formerly a partner and VP of Product Development for Web Decisions, a database driven, marketing solutions and advertising company based in Greensboro, N.C.
Bahlke (pictured to the right) will be handling many of the day-to-day operations of the content for SkiSoutheast.com, HighCountryOutdoors.com and the many weather related websites. Tim is an avid outdoor enthusiast and enjoys hiking, paddling and of course skiing the area's many ski resorts. Tim is a native of Boone, NC, received a degree in Outdoor Recreation Management from ASU, and has worked as a ski instructor, rental technician, and outdoor guide with many of the region’s resorts, retail shops, and outfitters. Tim has big plans to grow a year-round online presence that puts as much focus on the region's hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, paddling, and outdoor activities – as we now do on snow skiing and snowboarding.
Mike Doble stated, "We're exciting by what Tim brings to the mix because not only is Tim an avid snow sports fan, he's committed to his own network of outdoor fun via a web presence that will be known as OnTheMtn, LLC."
OnTheMtn.com is currently being developed and will connect with HighCountryOutdoors.com, all of the weather websites such as HighCountryWeather.com and of course SkiSoutheast.com.
"Tim's background is a perfect match for the continuing growth of SkiSoutheast.com and all of our outdoor websites as he's an IT guy with a strong background in how to market online products via email marketing and more. He and I have been talking about working together for some time now and things worked out that allow for Tim's involvement", said Doble.
Doble adds, "Tim has made a financial investment that insures his involvement in the process for years to come and we're excited by his passion for the outdoor industry within our region and about his work ethic that he's exhibited in his past endeavors."
Doble will still be involved with SkiSoutheast.com as a frequent columnist. Additionally, Joe Stevens, Herb Stevens, Brad Panovich and other featured columnists such as Tonette Fisk and Kenny Griffin will continue in their roles although the daily snow reporting and the FirsTraks column will be written by Bahlke.
Tim Bahlke added, "I'm very excited about leading the website into its next chapter of success. I've already been working with the AppNet team to implement new ideas that we'll be bringing to my own outdoors website (OnTheMtn.com) and the four seasons of outdoor activities and of course I can't wait until the 2013-2014 ski and snowboarding season to get fully involved in that part of the process."
