of the Ski-Trac:
Ski-Trac was invented, designed
and developed by Kevin Ferris of Brisbane,
Australia. The first snow tests of the unique snow-making eco-system
took place in Townsville November 1997 in association with George
Jennings of Woomera Snow Guns, Canberra. A one-tenth size test
model was built in a factory at Taren Point in Sydney. Systems
development took place with the assistance of Richard Worsdall
of Ski-Trac's project management company Kinlay Neill Worsdall,
with engineering development by Meinhardt, Sydney.
