Introduction

ski.com.au was one of the first snow sports websites in Australia and was established in July 1995 to primarily service online snow reports. It has grown a lot since then and now provides a modest range of stuff to someone wishing to visit the snow in Australia.

It was called initially known as SnoInfo, highlighting its focus in the early days of providing information about snow sports and the related services that punters require to have a good time in the snow fields.

The two principal protagonists, Ian and Richard, have slaved tirelessly to bring Australia the premier snow resource in the country. Some could say, the world.

It is supported by an avid (rabid?) army of volunteers who have formed a community that is physical and virtual, sustained over most of the site's life. An annual conference at a ski resort brings both the owners and the army together to share life's pleasures.

History

1995

Established in July 1995 when one of the founders approached a local Newcastle ski shop about putting snow reports online. Initially it was just NSW snow reports and based on the daily faxes that were sent to Ian at Uni and updated from there.

Unfortunately no screen grabs exist of the original website.
