Be Snow Safe

The alpine environment is a beautiful destination for winter or summer holidays and a venue for many challenging and exciting activities including skiing and bushwalking. The alpine regions however, can be hazardous if visitors are careless or irresponsible.

For more information, especially first timers the Snow Safe Australia website provides a wealth of information.
