Snow play at Din­ner Plain

Alpine News - - News -

DIN­NER Plain Alpine Vil­lage which sits at 1580 me­tres above sea level, is the high­est per­ma­nently in­hab­ited free­hold vil­lage in Aus­tralia and be­cause Din­ner Plain is a free­hold vil­lage, re­sort en­try fees are not re­quired to visit the vil­lage/ski area.

For the first time ever, Din­ner Plain will of­fer win­ter vis­i­tors the op­por­tu­nity to go ice skat­ing in the snow with a pop-up ice skat­ing rink op­er­at­ing in the vil­lage cen­tre dur­ing the July school hol­i­days.

Ice skates and pen­guins (to help young chil­dren learn to skate), will be avail­able at the rink.

Lo­cated at the Din­ner Plain Snowgum ten­nis courts from Satur­day, July 8 to Sun­day, July 16 from 12pm – 8pm.

Another new ad­di­tion for 2017 is ‘Alpine Laser Skir­mish’. This new ac­tiv­ity by Great Alpine Ad­ven­tures (founders of Howl­ing Husky Sled Dog Tours) will see par­tic­i­pants out and rolling in the snow and play­ing laser skir­mish in the snow. Three peo­ple per team are re­quired to play.

Along with FREE en­try to the vil­lage, Din­ner Plain also have free tub­ing at the tube slide which is valid with all lift passes and to­bog­gan­ing at the Pea Shooter to­bog­gan run is free for all to use, just BYO to­bog­gan or rent one from one of the ski hire shops.

With a gen­tle slope and easy-touse poma lift, the begin­ners ski slope on Scrub­bers End at Din­ner Plain is one of the eas­i­est and most af­ford­able places to learn to ski. Lift passes are avail­able from the base of the slope at the Alpine Life ski shop in Din­ner Plain or on­line from Hotham Sports.

Again in 2017 night ski­ing will be avail­able with the Cobun­gra Plat­ter ski slope lit up ev­ery Wed­nes­day and Satur­day night dur­ing peak sea­son. Lift tick­ets will only be $10 be­tween 6pm and 9pm.
