We all get together with friends and family to sit on rugs in the natural amphitheatre that fronts the Jindabyne stage. Children run around and gather at the edge of the stage to dance to Carol’s who are all sung by our local Choir’s and individuals.

We are now entering the fantastic springtime in the mountains. This is where the gum trees start to blossom and the grass starts to grow once again!
The air takes on that sweet smell and the days get longer so you can ski late in the day. The resorts will keep a lift or two open till 5:30 although sking will be best during the mid morning until early afternoon. Then you can take time to relax and look out over the lake and get ready to do it all again tomorrow!
Why not take some time off from sking and fit in other activities like a bush walk at lower levels or a thrilling 4wd quad bike tour?
Spring in the mountains is one of the best times to visit this unique area. Get here soon!!!!
