I think the funny thing about SP in Europe is that there are very committed members who spend valuable time making beautiful pages. But even moderately active members are all so spread out across the countries that we can't usually share experiences from the same places. It's really just a handful of people, easily dwarfed by the membership of Colorado alone, yet spread over a much wider and more diverse area.
I don't think creating mountain pages is the most important thing about Summitpost for European users. I think it should be used as a platform to share current conditions and introduce climbers to each other. Because that just doesn't exist in Europe! (more on this below). Because of the number of highly technical climbs in the Alps, guidebooks will be with us for decades I think, even if they move to electronic form. In the U.S., it seems like you can rely on Summitpost as a free resource for the areas Dow Williams frequents, which is an incredible accomplishment. How many DWs would Europe need and for how many years must they labor to catch up to thousands of proprietary pages/topos? That, until they are replaced by Summitpost, need to be purchased at considerable expense? We don't have anyone doing that.
I often wonder where Europeans get their current condition information. Coming from the Pacific Northwest, I felt that an online source was invaluable, for example the WTA.ORG site to know when trailheads were snowfree for driving to. This information system seems to be not only less important, but also to operate on a smaller, more private and segmented scale. Less important because those living in the populous flatlands book a multi-week trip to the mountains well in advance. They don't need "beta," they are just not there or there. More private because a tendency to segment information flows only begins with language. It extents to country, club, sub-specialty. So for example, in order to discover if certain high trails are open I might be best off going to a German "klettersteig" website if I know that the trailhead includes a famous via ferrata. Finally, pre-internet networks must continue to function very highly - what else to explain the dearth of good conditions information for the German, Swiss, Austrian, Italian Alps? This would involve calling the hut warden, or guide services. The huts are the most reliable source, I think now.
Chamonix is special, because highly motivated London and Paris-based climbers want to go for the weekend, or precious short holidays (the British).
Finally, it must be considered that my continuous chewing on this topic is an artifact of my American character. Time-saving Convenience as virtue. I never heard anyone say "Yeah, I Agree!" to any of it. People here are more tolerant of making mistakes in weekend planning and discovering alternatives on the fly. This is admirable for sure! But I'm still hoping for a better current condition network.
