    I am wondering if Jindabyne could have its own listing as a resort in its own right . Jindabyne has been moving from simply an accomodation and service hub to being a resort with an increasing range of activities . Hopefully that will continue to develop . I am currently in the tatras in Slovakia . Jasna is the main ski area but there are smaller snow play , beginner / rail park and family areas and summer bike and water parks close to liptovski mikoulas the nearest town and a complex indoor heated water park with incredible facilities . The state and federalgovernment and shire council need to be involved in facilitating these type of developments as they will secure the town as resort in itself and relieve the national park from being the sole provider for some of these facilities and activities . There are other posts that touch on this but I wondered if it deserved a thread in itself

    Yes hence my thread heading . A small heated pool is nothing compared to what I have just seen and would work well in Jindabyne .

    Jindy has fallen into being popular.

    IMO many local people would rather it be a ag town. With all the facilities a $$$ town has

    There is a bit of this, but there is also the "I like the tourists but I wish they would shit next to the lake" type complaint which I think is somewhat justifiable. Especially since the lake shitters camp for free and bring everything with them.

    The Epic Pass has rooned Jindy!! Was better when a season pass was $1500!
