Expedia hones in on ski with Snow Companion app for Facebook
The app enables users to plan, create a shortlist and book a ski holiday with a group of friends within Facebook.
Expedia unveiled an upgraded version of Trip Companion three weeks ago combining professionally generated content and user reviews as well as a wishlist feature.
The online travel agency initially unveiled a beta version of the app just over a year ago enhancing it with a raft of new features in March 2011.
The Snow Companion service has been developed in conjunction with design company Made by Many with input from ski and snowboard enthusiasts.
