It costs thousands of dollars to operate DCSki each year. Over the past decade, independent publications have become endangered as more and more advertising revenue is funneled to a small number of companies, such as Google and Facebook. A small number of advertisers support DCSki, but this only covers a fraction of the fixed costs of running the site.
Unlike other sites, DCSki does not participate in cross-site ad networks, and does not plaster annoying ads all over pages. We consider that disrespectful to our users. Although this significantly reduces our revenue, it protects your privacy, increases the speed of the site, and allows you to become immersed in the original content and stories that we've worked so hard to create.
If you enjoy DCSki and would like to support independent journalism, there are two ways you can show your support.
DCSki's Patreon Site allows you to set up a recurring monthly donation as small as $1 per month, helping to cover DCSki's year-round expenses.
Alternatively, you can "drop a coin in our tip jar" by making a one-time donation to DCSki via PayPal. Click the Donate button below to get started.
Contributors to DCSki will be recognized each time they post to the DCSki Forums, assuming the e-mail address you provide when you make your donation matches the e-mail address we have on file for your Forum account.
We should also point out that DCSki is not a charity, so any donation you make is not tax-deductible.
Thanks in advance for your support -- it makes a big difference!
