And they are on again in 2018.

Closing - Paddy Pallin/Mountain Adventure Centre Jindabyne

24.01.18

The XC community has been privileged to be looked after by generous, knowledgable retailers who have been integral parts of the community for decades. We have been so used to being able to consult with and be looked after by these retailers that it came as a shock when the oldest of those shops - the Paddy Pallin/Mountain Adventure Centre at the Thredbo turn-off - announced closure by the end of January due to the non-renewal of the lease for the shop.

Sverre Kaaten Nordic Shelter

24.01.18

The Nordic Shelter continues to be supported and maintained by the people who use it. Thank you to all who have contributed to the significant costs, time and resources required to keep it open and constantly improving. There was a sharp rise in the cost of electricity this year, partly due to the extended season and largely due to increased costs of power in Perisher, one of the most expensive areas for power in NSW.

XC Ski Week Wrap UP

23.08.17

A great week (plus) was had by all that made it. Some character building weather at the beginning and the end, with some of the best skiing for years, in between. What is typically trying weather for the KAC Classic was picture book with only a light breeze. All events were held and well attended with a stand-out being the KCros Tour and the Snowy Mountains Classic.
