frequently asked questions

Generally no. For the vast majority of the winter season Corin Rd is accessible to all cars, however on days of natural snowfall the road may be restricted to 4WD or cars carrying chains.

ACT Roads will usually close the road to all traffic while snow clearing takes place and then re-open the road to all cars once the snow is cleared. In the event of these delays Corin Forest will honour all bookings and reschedule or refund your tickets if your unable to access the resort.  

It is impossible for us to predict when the snow will fall or what the effect on the road will be.  We will announce on our Facebook if snow is forecast to give guests warning.

Corin Forest usually receives natural snow about 6 times per winter. For most of the winter we rely on our snowguns to give us our snow cover.

To make snow we wait till the temperatures are below freezing and spray water mixed with air under high pressure and it falls to the ground as snow. We also have an all-weather snowmaking machine that makes flake ice in temperatures above freezing.

No chemicals of any kind are used in our snowmaking process.

There is no accommodation on site at Corin Forest, however Canberra’s CBD is only a 45 minute drive away and has plenty of great options. We recommend Novotel Canberra, located in the heart of the City. Its central location makes it easy to explore everything Canberra has to offer and the heated indoor pool, spa, and sauna are the perfect way to warm up after a day in the snow.

At Corin Forest you only pay to take part in our activities. We are located outside of the national park so there are no entry or parking fees.

We have a large café with an open fireplace (winter only) and a wood fired pizza oven. The café serves a range of hot and cold drinks, snacks and pizzas. 

We strongly recommend booking ahead. Corin Forest is very popular in wintertime and we only have a limited amount of space in our snow areas. We limit numbers for everybody’s safety and enjoyment.

As space is limited all persons wanting to enter the Snowplay or Ski areas will need a ticket. If you do not wish to be on the snow and want to watch from our viewing decks beside the Snowplay area and Ski Hill, or just want to visit the café, you do not need to book a ticket.

For the safety of all guests, only Corin Forest Toboggans are permitted in the Snowplay Area.

We do not have gloves available for rental, however we have a retail shop that sells a wide range of gloves with prices starting around $20.

Provided there is sufficient snow cover all sessions go ahead as scheduled. If Corin Forest management determine conditions are not safe we will not operate activities and provide you with a credit for any affected activities. This credit will be valid for one year so you have plenty of time to reschedule your visit.

We stock all available clothing sizes from the age of 4 to adult 5XL. 

We stock clothing for ages 4 up for younger children we recommend a single piece suit with integrated footwear and mittens.  We are unable to rent these due to hygiene reasons – they are available for purchase from baby shops.  

The Corin Forest lodge is wheelchair accessible and we have an accessible bathroom. We recommend contacting if you have any questions on mountain access.

The Alpine Slide is open year round (weather permitting). Please check our online booking system for available dates and times.

Yes, our picnic area is dog friendly. Our snow play area is not open to dogs during our general season, however we host designated snow dogs days in September. Dates for this year will be announced on our Facebook page closer to the event. Please be mindful that areas surrounding Corin Forest, such as Gibraltar Falls and woods reserve, are part of a national park and are not dog friendly.
