Introducing the Maven Slopes Challenge

Need another dashboard for your analytics portfolio?

Looking for a ski resort for your next winter vacation?

We have just what you need, including another chance to win a free annual all-access membership to Maven Analytics!

We’ve just added a new dataset to the Data Playground with data on nearly 500 ski resorts around the world, making it perfect for building an exploratory, interactive dashboard on Power BI or Tableau (or other tools like Excel & Python!).

To go along with this release, we’re launching the Maven Slopes Challenge and giving away a free annual all-access membership to the winner.

We’ll share more about the challenge details below, but first let’s talk about the data…

About the dataset

  • This dataset contains 2 tables in CSV format

  • The Resorts table contains information on 499 ski resorts around the world, including their location, slopes, lifts, prices, and ski season

  • The Snow table contains supplemental data on the surface of the earth covered by snow for each month in 2022, by latitude & longitude

How to play the Maven Slopes Challenge

To participate in this challenge, your task is to build a one-page dashboard to help skiers find their ideal destination.

Here’s how to submit your entry:

  1. NEW STEP: Upload your entry as a portfolio project on the Maven Analytics platform (learn more)

  2. Share a LinkedIn post mentioning @Maven Analytics and the hashtag #mavenslopeschallenge, with an image or link to your project

  3. Complete the official challenge submission form to make sure you are entered for a chance to win

Make sure to follow Maven Analytics on LinkedIn for updates on the challenge and invite your connections to play along!

How to win

For the first time in a Maven Analytics challenge, all submissions must be uploaded to the Maven platform to be eligible for a prize. Every element on the project page will be considered and evaluated for judging, including the project title, embedded media, images, and description.

Finalists will be chosen based on the insights, creativity, design, visualizations, and interactivity. The winner will be selected from the finalist pool by the Maven Analytics team, via live voting.

What you can win

As part of the Maven Slopes Challenge, we'll be giving away 1 annual all-access Maven membership completely free of charge. The winner will get access to all of our Excel, Power BI, Tableau, SQL, Python, and Machine Learning courses, all with direct support and coaching from our expert instructors.

No purchase is necessary to participate. As always, this challenge is open to both current Maven subscribers and everyone else.
