Wintergreen Resort Redesign

New Features:

  • Responsive Design – a single year-round site that scales appropriately for optimal viewing on all devices (mobile, tablet, laptop, desktop)
  • Carousel Images – Rotating full-width banner images are a crucial element on each page, highlight impressive beauty of resort, draw user in, sell the experience at a glance
  • Booking Button – Persistent element at the bottom of carousel on each page encourages booking
  • Search – Ensure users find what they want
  • Navigation – Focus on guest experience, what users want and what we want to promote. Timely and most popular information easiest to access. Combined pages where possible, tabbed information.
  • Blue “Current” Box – persistent element in the header on each page with most popular and important content : Temperature/Weather, Mountain Cam, Blog, Slope Report (seasonal), This Week at Wintergreen
  • Promo Boxes – Rotate, updated look from old site
  • Live Feed – with rich media content
    • Blog – Once a winter-only external blog, the new blog is year-round and internal which keeps users on our site, and is accessed through a feed on the Home Page or through a link in the Blue “Current” Box in the header. This provides more marketing space, social content, encourages repeat traffic and loyalty, and is dynamite for SEO.
    • Mountain Cams – used to have one cam embedded in weatherbug page, now have three embedded on one of our pages. The two new cams move to golf for Spring, Summer, Fall.
    • Video – Showcase this rich media content since it is most desirable by users, can be reused on social media and throughout site, and helps SEO
    • Social – sort of a teaser to encourage people to like us on Facebook and see how active and interesting we are without ever leaving the site.
