We don't have just any advertisers on STYLE ALTITUDE, we have STYLE PARTNERS; brands that, we believe, have a synergy with our winter skiing and snowboarding ethos or summer cycling in the mountain vibe. Find out how to become a STYLE PARTNER.
STYLE ALTITUDE welcomes all like-minded brands, that is, those who share our love of skiing, snowboarding and mountain cycling, to become STYLE PARTNERS. In return for advertising, STYLE ALTITUDE will support your brand, promoting via editorial and social media.
We have advertising slots for our STYLE PARTNERS on our Home Page (see rates below), including the top Hero Banner, Display Banners and Side Bar Panels. Additionally we can offer advertorials and sponsorship opportunities for our editorial sections: Features, Gear, Resorts, Seasonaires, News and Blog - or for specific features.
As an accepted STYLE PARTNER we will support and promote your brand with an exclusve feature(s), inclusion in regular Gear and Kit Guides and/or Social Media posts.
We are also set up for e-commerce and selling via the site.

We're delighted to hear from all PRs with relevant information about skiing, snowboarding or cycling. And, yes, we know you're (usually) not in control of the advertising budget.
But we'd love to work with you via PRODUCT TESTING where we will try out any gear actually on the mountains where we are based during the winter and summer seasons. On piste, off piste, slackcountry, backcountry and touring!
Also, we can run COMPETITIONS with the products you represent. This way, you have our attention and editorial coverage; we are able to offer quality prizes; and our followers can get their hands on free kit.
So a win, win, win situation.
