“Who are those guys?”
It’s a good question. We’re a small band of highly committed and long-serving snow industry people, with wide-ranging areas of expertise and worldwide connections, who just sat down one day in 2010 and decided we would give birth to Snow Industry News and deliver up-to-the-minute trade news for snow professionals worldwide, or as we like to say ‘News For Snow Pros’, because nobody was really doing it.
You’ll notice we don’t use by-lines or make ourselves the story… because it's not about us; it’s about snow business people, the places, the technology, the weather, the financials, the events and more.
In the time that SIN has been delivering the news (something like 21,000 articles at last count), we’ve grown a substantial audience of the who’s who of all things snowsports from all over the world and engagement grows daily. SIN will never compete on numbers with a consumer sites that mainly rely on weather and snow reporting, but we will win on quality and relevance, that’s a promise.
To give you some idea:

But it’s not about sheer numbers, it’s about WHO they are and WHAT they want. Strategically, you may need to be putting your message in front of the snow industry’s opinion leaders and there is no better or easier way than via the targeted environment of SIN.
So how can we help you and how can you help us?
We see it as a symbiotic relationship. We love doing what we do but there are a few bills to pay and we are certainly not in it to fund lifestyles! We’re go for a much simpler, grown up, solution… become a SIN Partner for a one-off small annual fee. That’s it.
Partnership Status gets you logo-listed in the Partners Section on ALL pages with link back to your site.
Your news releases will definitely run so long as they are relevant, honest, truthful etc and, ideally, written by someone who can write (no pressure, no offence!)
