How it Works

In the event of an area closure, Corin Forest will notify all guests with affected bookings via the email address provided by the guest at the time of booking. This email will contain further instructions on how to claim your credit or refund.

Due to the unpredictable nature of changing weather and snow conditions, advance notice of closures is not always possible. Guests are advised to take responsibility ahead of their visit by monitoring the live snow cam at www.corin.com.au and checking Corin Forest’s social media for any updates.
