News from the Resorts

The winter season is nearly upon us.

Attached, from the current edition (no 4) of the Snowy Mountains Magazine, are copies of some articles of interest to Club members.

Steve Cuff, the founder of the Snowy Mountains Magazine, has provided the information set out below in relation to the Magazine and how best to access it.



Visitors to the snow this year will see a new FREE Snowy Mountains Magazine now circulating. This magazine was started by Jindabyne’s Steve Cuff and is printed 8 times per annum. They have already published four editions across summer and autumn and will now start monthly editions starting in June until September.

Visitors to the snow can find hard copies at many places, but for Perisher guests you could find them at distribution boxes at Nuggets Crossing in Jindabyne, Skitube Bullocks Flat and Skitube Terminal Building at Perisher. The main commercial hotels also receive them for their guests and some lodges will have copies placed in their delivery bins at the Perisher Freight shed.

For those not in the snow yet or who may be in the cities, most ski and snowboard shops receive them in Canberra and Sydney, or you can just as easily subscribe for free and read the online edition.

Visit and follow the directions to register as a once off to enable you to view the full edition.

You will have to enter details, but you do not get bombarded with spam messages.

You can scroll through all the pages and keep up to date with the latest news and stories. You can also share stories from the online edition to your Facebook page for other people to see the links

If there is a lodge manager at each lodge, feel free to take a few copies at the start of the month from the distribution boxes back to your lodge.

Should you have any interesting stories, send Steve an email and he will contact you in due course and discuss if he thinks it may be of interest to readers.

Steve previously worked on the Snowy Times, but this Fairfax publication is no longer printing in the region as of last November.

The new magazine also has a website, and a Facebook page you can like, Snowy Mountains Magazine.
