Rehabilitation Guidelines for the Resort Areas of Kosciuszko National Park have been prepared with the involvement of ski resort operators.

The  guidelines provide technical advice on how to plan and implement rehabilitation works. The guidelines are reviewed and updated regularly to ensure they reflect up-to-date best practice.

The guidelines have been developed to meet the particular needs of ski resort managers. As a result, they focus on the characteristics and requirements of the resort areas of Thredbo, the Perisher Range Resorts (Perisher, Smiggin Holes and Guthega), Charlotte Pass and Mount Selwyn. The guidelines would also be useful to other land managers working in the montane, subalpine and/or alpine zones of Kosciuszko National Park and the Australian Alps (for example, Country Energy, Telstra, Snowy Hydro and government authorities).
