Story shot 30 - 31 July 2018: The whiteness of being: scenes from a ski town
Intrepid photojournalist Jane Cowan from ABC News Digital joined us earlier this season during one of our fiercest snowstorms to capture life 'behind the scenes' in a ski resort. She spent time with a range of staff, in some extreme conditions, to create this incredible story, that so beautifully portrays the people of the mountains.

Ex-sled dog racer Brett Hadden, running beside his huskies, is a man who likes dogs better than people. “When I was a boy I saw The Call of the Wild and it inspired me to have this adventure.”
For the clocked-off among the 1,700 or so staff that work on the mountain, there are darts to be played …

Alpine areas, which are those above the natural treelineand are covered by snow for roughly four months of the year, account for 0.15% of Australia’s total land mass. Alpine environments are therefore geographically rare and should be treated as special and unique places. Read about our environmental policies below.
