Worlds First Location enabled mobile website

go2wintersports from go2 is a mobile website launched for sports enthusiasts.

They claim it as the world's first GPS-like location-enabled mobile website dedicated to providing winter sports enthusiasts and vacation resort travelers with the most comprehensive information on weather, snow and ski conditions, lodging, dining, entertainment and travel services for more than 500 ski destinations and resorts in the U.S.

"All go2 websites can also utilize new GPS-like technologies (referred to as Location-Based Services or LBS) where available by the major carriers in the U.S. LBS technologies enable mobile phone users to automatically determine their precise location at the touch of a button using their phones and carriers mobile network, facilitating go2's delivery of localized search results sorted by distance from the user's location. In addition, go2 uses its patented location management system to make it easier for users to personalize their go2 experience and utilize LBS across the entire go2 Mobile Content Network."
