The 2016/17 resort videos with perfect YouTube ratings.

divider image for this post

YouTube ratings are interesting things. When a video is viewed as en embed or a pre-roll ad, viewers find their way to the video’s original YouTube page where they can leave a rating.

Filtering diverse content by the same criteria is never perfect, but when you filter YouTube videos by both number of ratings but also the rating themselves you get a really good blend of popularity and organic viewership through YouTUbe’s much more refined algorithm rather than letting paid placements (that drive views) rise to the top.

When I ran the ranking this time I noticed that when two filters were applied:

  • At least 25 ratings.
  • Uploaded since Nov 1, 2016

Exactly 26 videos had both 25+ ratings but also a perfect score of 5.0.

It’s kind of an interesting, intriguing collection of resort news, lift updates, snow reports, and freeskiing edits. Take a look.
