Intersport Ski & Snowboard Calculator

JavaScript Widget

We worked with our friends at acm group to develop this nice little JavaScript ski hire calculator as a WordPress plugin for the Intersport ski hire blog. The brief was to allow users to see how much they could save by hiring skis or snowboards at the resort rather than taking their own with them on the ‘plane. The savings are displayed as an on-screen “print-out” from an old-fashioned receipt printer.

Intersport provided figures for the average ski hire package price across the winter season. By linking this figure to a live currency conversion rate we were able to give the ski hire calculator real-time prices with every calculation. It then compares these figures with the cost of taking a ski or snowboard bag to France on the plane to show the users how much they could save.
