ENVIRONMENTAL CARE

In an endeavour to protect the resort areas, the resorts undertake feral animal control and weed control to protect our native fauna and flora.

Our native alpine fauna are very vulnerable to predators such as cats and foxes and have limited natural defences to attacks by these
introduced species.

Similarly, the alpine resorts aim to control the reserves from weeds such as English Broom, Hawkweed, Lupins, Pattersons Curse, Blackberries and even cultivated species such as domestic apple.
  So keep your eyes open during summer or winter rambles and take your apple cores home with you.

If, during summer or winter, you see cats, foxes, straying cattle or weeds, notify the resort office, or National Parks and Wildlife.

The alpine environment is fragile. Please treat it with care and respect, so that others may enjoy it after you.
 

Alcohol & Drugs are fuel for disaster in the snow, they impair your judgement and your ability. Your reaction times are significantly reduced and increase the risk of injury. The whole alpine experience begins when you leave home and doesn’t finish until you return. Avoid alcohol consumption and the use of illegal substances, because they increase your risk of hypothermia.

Alcohol & Drugs impair judgement, slow response time and reduce your ability to respond to an emergency.
