Snow play at Dinner Plain
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.
