Corin Forest rises again

Word reaches us of new management taking over at Corin Forest with the big slide running from boxing day:

Corin Forest Mountain Resort will reopen on Boxing Day (26th Dec) with new management. After closing last winter due to a large rockslide on the Corin Dam Road, the timing seemed appropriate for a change.

The new management team is revitalising this iconic piece of Canberra’s outdoors.

Corin Forest holds fond memories for many Canberrans for its alpine slide, winter snow and roaring open fire in the lodge, all set amongst the picturesque mountain location and local wildlife.

High in the spectacular Tidbinbilla Mountain range, Corin is part of the territory unknown to most Canberrans. Woods Reserve, Gibraltar Falls, Square Rock, Corin Dam and Corin Forest are all situated on the Corin Dam Road, less than a one hour drive from Civic.

Corin Forest has been operating for over 25 years and has survived bushfires, floods, blizzards and everything in-between. Incoming manager Dane Liepins says any people have a special affection for Corin Forest.

“I was out driving in the mountains a few years ago and came across Corin Forest – I had totally forgotten that it existed! My Mum and Dad used to take me there when I was little and walking around there twenty or more years later it was like meeting a long lost friend.

“Looking to the future we want to preserve that wholesome experience while updating the product to fit the modern Canberran.” Mr Liepins said.

This summer Corin Forest will open the alpine slide and newly remodelled Cafe from 10am – 4pm throughout the school holidays, and for weekends and public holidays throughout the remainder of the summer season, as well as hosting private events.

Winter will see snow on the ground thanks to a new snowmaking system and Canberra families will once again be able to enjoy snow in their own backyard.

Good news to see a Canberra icon reopening. Now all we need is someone to reopen The Tower Restaurant on Black Mountain. Sadly there doesn’t seem to be anybody who wants to move in and restore it to the gold standard it was when we owned it.

A wise man advised me never to eat at a restaurant that rotates or floats.
