When will Corin have snow?

We are dependent on Mother Nature to deliver natural snow or temperatures cold enough to make snow (we need extended periods below -2 degrees). Our season usually runs from mid June till mid-September. If you’re wanting to see natural snow falling we will do our best to update people several days ahead of a predicted snowfall. Keep your eye on our Facebook and Twitter for the latest news.

We strongly encourage you to book ahead for skiing and snow play sessions. For safety we limit the capacity of our on snow areas. Pre booking guarantees you a spot on the snow and speeds up the process when you arrive

Is it dangerous?

Alpine activities carry a degree of risk by their nature - snow and ice can be hazardous. Snow play and tobogganing come with additional risks created by both yourself and others. Safety of all patrons is our priority and in order to use our facilities you need to be aware of these risks, and complete a waiver document at the ticket window or as part of the online ticket sales process.

Do you have accommodation?

Unfortunately not at this time. Corin Forest is only 45 minutes drive from central Canberra where there is a wide variety of accommodation options. For nearby accommodation we recommend the Alpha Hotel in Tuggenerong
