TOURISM Snowy Mountains (TSM) Chairman Peter Cochran has invited snowboarders, skiers and other snow loving enthusiasts to return to the Snowy Mountains in the summer months to see that there's so much to see and do here in the region in the warmer months.
TSM's new radio has launched new ads playing on Radio in the Snowy Mountains with the tag-line: "There's so much more to the Snowy Mountains than you think."
"Many people don't realise that there is more to the Snowy Mountains than just the snow; most visitors during the ski season would find a whole new world of fun and adventure in world-class mountain bike riding and road cycling, bushwalking and hiking, fly fishing, water sports and horse riding like the 'Man from Snowy River' in the vastness of the mountain ranges," Mr Cochran said.
Visitors to the region can also find alpine resorts full of life and family fun activities throughout spring summer and autumn months. Plus, they can trek to the top of Australia's highest peak, Mt Kosciuszko, explore the Kosciuszko National Park or take a look at the Snowy Hydro Scheme's education centres to discover the history behind our country's biggest engineering feat.
"The Snowy Mountains are gifted with natural features which lend themselves to summer sports activities, adventure and eco-recreation that blend with the landscape and waterways providing a one stop shop for families and young people looking for a unique holiday," Mr Cochran said.
The Snowy Mountains region is also home to a variety of great restaurants and cafes, renowned cold climate wines, beer and schnapps, as well as, fabulous driving routes to explore, festivals and events to see.
"Our region is open year-round; restaurants, accommodation and service facilities continue to operate during the summer to allow visitors the same after hour's options as winter, while they enjoy the brilliant sunshine and crystal clear air during the day. The Snowy Mountain is a very healthy place to be in summer," Mr Cohran said.
"Come back in the summer and let us show you a whole new world of adventure. The Snowy Mountains, there's more to it than you think."
