Introduction was the first snow sport website in Australia to be registered (May 1995), however the long demised 'Cyberski' beat to public launch by a few months back in May 1995 with first publishing some weeks later 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. was called and initially known as Sno-Info, highlighting it's 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 name Sno-Info also reflected the trend of the day to name information portals after the subject they catered to, e.g. Cric-Info (cricket) Fish-Info (fishing) etc. All now long gone except for

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

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.



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.
