History of Jerrabomberra Lodge
"Jerrabomberra" Aboriginal word meaning "a place of high wind"
An enterprising group of people commenced building of the lodge in the summer of 1978.
Among those inolved were Des Cooper, Dianne Constantine and Bill Fletcher. The building was designed and built by David Trinder of Trinder Alpine Constructions. It's style could be described as "Australian Alpine Resort" with some European influcences. The cost of buidling the lodge in 1978 was $179,000 which in todays' terms seems not a lot of money.
Building in the high country in the 70's was no easy task - the weather either very hot or very cold, the ground full of large boulders to be excavated and shirted, marterials transported a long way and equipment and skilled labour always difficult to find.
The other lodges in the valley at the time of the construction work commencing were KAC, Knockshannock. Southern Alps and of course The Chalet.
The building of Jerrabomberra showed that many people were confident about skiing in Charlotte Pass and those skiers introduced to the valley added greatly to that existing skiing base who were enjoying Charlotte Pass up to that time.
Jerrabomberra is a family Ski Lodge with 50 'A' Members and 100 'B' Members. The Lodge is managed by a 9 member committee. The day to day running of the Lodge is by contract management team selected on a yearly tender basis.

Jerrabomberra Lodge is a very popular and busy Lodge and the food that is produced for our Guests is nutritious and very wholesome. The Lodge is not a Restaurant!!
For obvious operational reasons the menus are prepared on a reoccurring basis for such a large group (30+ guests and children) and does not provide for a choice of meals.
Our Staff work very hard and fast in the kitchen to ensure that the vast majority of our great meals are delivered on time. There is very little time to cater for differing diets, not only because of the time constraints but because the Lodge is isolated and special dietary needs are difficult and (often) expensive to source from suppliers.
The bar is open during lunch and it is open again from 5pm till 10pm.
Cocktails, champagne, wine, beer, spirits, soft drinks and snacks are for sale at reasonable prices. There is even a “Cocktail for the Day”

Have Fun!! Enjoy and happy skiing!!
Regional Express (Rex), in partnership with Snowy Mountains Airport Corporation Pty Ltd(SMAC), has today announced that it will commence Regular Public Transport (RPT)services between Sydney and the Snowy Mountains (Cooma) in March 2016.
Services will commence from Wednesday 23 March 2016 for the Easter period, with the core schedule of five return services per week commencing from Monday 28 March 2016. Additional services on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays will operate through the ski season.
The Snowy Mountains region has been without RPT air services since mid December 2013 when the prior operator Brindabella Airlines was placed into receivership.
Rex General Manager Network Strategy & Sales, Mr Warrick Lodge said, "Rex is thrilled to re-establish RPT services to the Snowy Mountains in partnership with Snowy Mountains Airport Corporation. We look forward to collaborating with SMAC to offer a quality service for the residents of the Snowy Mountains and for the many visitors to the region during both the winter and summer seasons. The air service is a vital link for the region, and will bring significant socio-economic benefits to the Snowy Mountains.”
"We have worked closely with SMAC to design the schedule and determine the seasonal timings of the service and will work with them and local tourism operators and organisations to promote the services.”
This is not the first time that Rex has operated RPT services to the Snowy Mountains. Rex operated services to the region for three years until the severe worldwide pilot shortage of 2007/08 forced Rex to suspend a number of services across its network. The Regional Express Group formed the Australian Airline Pilot Academy (AAPA), its pilot training facility based in Wagga Wagga, to combat this issue.
Chairman of Snowy Mountains Airport Corporation, Kevin Blyton is delighted that Snowy Mountains Airport will again welcome Rex to the region. "Rex delivered a very reliable and safe service in the past and the resumption of regular year round flights to and from Sydney provides an important link for the people of the Snowy Mountains.”"We look forward to working with Rex in providing the best possible air service to satisfy the needs of both the business and tourism sectors for many years to come,” he added.
The services will be operated by Rex's fleet of 34-seat Saab 340 aircraft and fares start at $149 each way (plus a booking/services surcharge).
