Snow lies – how the internet has forced the truth in snow reporting

Ok, I’ve written about this before.  You can click here to read my thoughts in 2007.  Have they changed in 2010?  Yes, just a little. Why?  Two words. The internet.

Snow reports aren’t the same with all this tweeting, facebooking, digging and deliciousing, not to mention snow web cams on legitimate websites not associated directly with snow resorts, except as advertisers ‘cos someone’s got to pay for the live streaming, right?

Resort snow reporters can’t lie anymore, because all the world is now a snow reporter. Read the Snow It All blog on the Sydney Morning Herald for the full lowdown.
