Which could be interesting.Corin Forest is growing for the 2016 snow season! In what may be a give-away of our plans for the upcoming winter we are looking for new staff to join our team.
We are looking for qualified ski instructors (level 1 APSI or higher), people with experience in ski rental and people who are passionate about snow sports to join our growing team. We are also looking for kitchen staff, baristas, cafe staff, cashiers and cleaners.
I saw some plans back in the 90s which included five trails serviced by a double chair.From memory (I worked there in 83, or 84) the big reason was needing an upgrade to the power, to be able to then go ahead with the bigger plans. The existing slope was only ever supposed to be a trail area, which was successful. The original proposal was to locate it at Mt Gininni, but without a sealed road, or enough power, and a government unwilling to invest it was never going to happen. Best wishes for the new owners, I hope they can make it grow!
Corin's just announced they're shutting up the skiing for this year, though snow play will go another week. 2.5 month season at 1200m - pretty good effort. Hope they made enough money to be doing it again next year.
I followed them on FB just for the hell of it and from what I can tell, their snowplay has been very very popular, often booked out on weekends and thru the school hols, but the skiing hasn't usually been as busy. From what I can remember I think they opened both at the same time in mid-June.Very good. Wondering how much of that was lifted sliding. If you know what I mean.
Out of curiosity, are you able to talk about the sort of work you did with them?I just did some work with them for ski patrol and they're looking forward to a bumper season. They've invested a more dollars and feel they've got a good product.
Good luck to them. It's a great way for the young 'uns to get a start.
