All about Snowpool was started in 2005 to allow people with spare spaces in their cars to find others to share the travel with.

Our view is that it's a goodly distance to drive to a ski field, so why not share the costs and meet some new people along the way. Obviously there's the sustainability climate change angle, but if you're motivated purely by keeping costs down, well, that's cool too!

Some Carpooling Suggestions

  1. Fill up the tank before you leave, and at the end, split the costs evenly (plus a few bucks for tyre wear and oil ;)
  2. Don't be late for the arranged meeting time & place
  3. Bring chocolate to share
  4. Finally, here are some carpooling safety and etiquette tips...


We really really love to hear feedback (positive or negative!), so please send any feedback to:

Most of all.. have fun.. and don't come running to us if your car driver turns out to be a psycho (remember the chocolate).


There are many people to thank for their help with over the years. Euan Boyd and Darren Cathcart for kick-starting the project along with me (Patrick Davey).

Futher thanks to Simone Quentin De Manson for help with a redesign.

Thanks to Alison Poulter who helped out showing us how this new-fangled Facebook and Twitter thing works ;) Also, for the previous few years we'd had a rectangular logo which facebook chopped the edges off. If you take "snowpool" and chop the ends off, well, you get "nowpoo", which isn't such a catchy name. Anyway, thanks to Alison for showing us how to get around that little roadbump and helping to get the word out..

Thanks to Malcolm Locke and Tim Ross for their help - Malc for helping me rewrite from PHP into Ruby, and Tim for help with the iOS app (now retired, not Tim, the app!)
