Easter Weekend: How good are our Snowy Mountains. I have just spent four days, body surfing down rapids, being chair lifted to great heights, walking alpine tracks, hanging out with my head in the clouds on Mt Kosciusko and being treated to a new paddling experience on Lake Jindabyne each day. What a blast!
We decided to head up into the Snowy Mountains rather than head to the coast as we usually do. We had the opportunity to stay at the Lake Crackenback Resort and what a winner that was. We had the best time, so much to do, so much to see and a weekend of perfect weather just topped it all off. What a brilliant summer destination and I could only imagine how picturesque it must be during winter. This resort is so close to the ski tube as well. We ski all the time during winter but this was our first time to the resort and it certainly won’t be our last. We will definitely be checking in for a stay during the ski season and I can’t wait to see what snap shots I will be able to snare with snow capped mountains in the back ground.
They could have been called the magic mountain instead.
We were floating amongst the clouds.

At this point I was hoping to snare breakfast from the restaurant above.
This was the view that is was taking in from the previous shot.
The Red Chilli even found an Easter egg amongst the reeds.
Lake Crackenback Resort…brilliant, well worth a look, so many thing to do and so much that is included such as mountains bikes for all of the trails, trout fishing in the lake or in the snowy river which is only 15 minute walk from here, tennis, heated pool, saunna, archery, golf and plenty of stunning walks.
We decided to stroll down to the Snowy River and take it all in.
I thought it would be a good idea to see whats under water as well.

The Snowy River from a different perspective. I love how the bubbles pick up the blue from the sky above.
It amazes me how thing can look so different.
I also ventured down to Lake Jindabyne for my daily paddle and I was blown away.

Did you see it…because I certainly didn’t. At one point the visability was down to 3 metres……OH YEAH.
Lucky I had my X-Files torch with me.
I loved cruising around on Lake Jindabyne with my three boys. I don’t know who enjoyed it more.

Every morning and every day I was wowed again and again.
I thoroughly recommend that you experience our Snowy Mountains, you won’t be disappointed.
