Managing Editor Steve Cuff accepts the Start Up Superstar award.

Our second year proved to be highly successful. Not only did we increase our pages in 6 out of our 8 editions, Snowy Mountains Magazine was awarded the Start up Superstar in the Snowy Monaro Business Awards. This has also qualified the magazine to contest the same award in the South East region business awards still to come.

It was a huge honour to win this award in only our second year and shows that our publication has been greatly received within the community.

Out of the 8 editions we print annually, we increased pages in 6 of these editions. This can only be achieved with increased advertising and again a huge show of support by the business community across the Snowy Mountains who entrust our publication to assist in promoting their business to region visitors.

The Snowy Mountains has had record visitation this winter and the past few years has a seen a constant rise in year round tourism, particularly in summer and autumn. We are proud to be the leading print medium assisting the region in further promotion.

We are continually striving to improve all facets of our publication and we look forward to a another great year ahead in 2019.



Snowy Mountains Magazine has just celebrated its first year of publication in October 2017.

The feedback from the first 8 editions has been overwhelming, from both an advertising point of view and from readers. We are thrilled that everyone loves the format and the stylish appeal of the magazine. Plus it is available in so many locations, no one misses out on picking up a copy.

In the first year it has established itself as the premiere Free Publication of the Snowy Mountains region, with coverage from both sides of the mountains an added appeal for readers.


In an exciting development for the Snowy Mountains region, a new free stylish magazine covering the area will be released in mid-October 2016.

Snowy Mountains Magazine is a joint venture between well respected Jindabyne media identity Steve Cuff and North East Media.

The magazine has been developed to cater for both visitors and locals looking to keep abreast of activities, events and happenings across all seasons in the Snowy Mountains region.

The magazine will include feature articles, travel stories, extensive calendar of events, touring drive guides, photo galleries and a property guide, plus much more.

Snowy Mountains Magazine will be published eight times per annum with two editions in summer, one in autumn and five covering the snow season.

With a print run ranging from 18,000 to 22,000 copies, and an estimated readership of four times the print edition, Snowy Mountains Magazine will be distributed at over 250 summer locations and 500 winter locations, reaching a potential combined 600,000 plus readership per annum in print alone.

Digital editions of the publication will enable readers to access full content digital editions of the magazine in a format they are familiar with via either smartphone, tablet or desktop device.

The magazine will also have an active social media presence and this dedicated website.
