HighCountryWeather.com was the first dedicated weather website for the High Country area. We debuted our first weather website on our original AppNet domain name back in 1998, and then purchased the dedicated domain name of HighCountryWeather.com on February 23rd, 2000 and moved our small weather website to it's permanent location. Most of the traffic to the site came from our partnership with HighCountryWebCams.com, SkiNC.com and SkiSoutheast.com. The network of weather, live webcams and ski traffic generated 5,243,357 unique visitors in 2010 with an average of more than 445,196 visitors per month - every month of the year. In addition to these top trafficked websites, we also own and operate a high-trafficked network of vacation and tourism related website that create additional daily traffic to our clients.
Then in October of 2010 we debuted a brand new HighCountryWeather.com website that included 25 station locations across the Southeast and Mid Atlantic mountains. The site saw immediate success and an increase in traffic. By December 2010 the website had already enjoyed a 700% increase in traffic. In addition to working with some of the region's top television meteorologists, we added Kenny Griffin, a recent Graduate of UNC Charlotte with a degree in meteorology, to our team. Kenny's task is to continue the growth and outreach that we've started with HighCountryWeather.com.
One of the most important bits of data that we can provide to viewers is that of accurate weather and temperature readings FROM the mountains, resorts, attractions, golf courses or ski areas that they're interested in visiting. It is fairly widely known that most all of the nationally, well-known weather resources actually display weather content that is not actually ON or in some cases all that near the actual mountain that you're interested in. In many cases due to elevations and other considerations, we've seen temperature displays on some of these national websites that are off by as much as 20° at any given time.
When it comes to winter weather - the difference in rain or
snow is often less than a degree or two.
IF WE GET OUR WAY - THAT WILL BE A THING OF THE PAST
This past October we took the first step in creating a weather network that will take our mountain's real time weather data to the region's television audience. HighCountryWeather.com released a new design and station implementation that is currently pulling data from independent reporting stations on or much closer to the mountains of our region. We've recently taken two more steps towards our goal of delivering real-time weather data FROM the mountains themselves. We installed two more Davis Weather Stations with real-time data logging.
We have it as one of our top goals over this summer to gain access to this same data for every mountain in our area of coverage. In addition to having one of the best television meteorologists in the region in Brad Panovich of NewsChannel 36 in Charlotte as our official weather partner, we've added Kenny Griffin, who recently obtained a degree in Meteorology from UNC Charlotte to our in-house team. One of Kenny's top duties will be to nurture and grow our relationships with the 60+ television stations of the Southeast and Mid Atlantic to provide them with whatever access that need or desire in the form of gaining access and control of the webcams and weather data.
