While Jindabyne is generally a safe place to enjoy a night out and catch up with friends, we would like to take this opportunity to give you a few suggestions on how to ensure you stay safe while walking around the community and between venues at night.
1. Regardless of the cost, if you are tired, drunk or distracted take a taxi home. If you are unable to get a taxi, call a friend. If your friends won’t come, get better friends.
2. Catch the Jindabyne Night bus – below is the current timetable which is currently transporting the community on busy nights out.
3. Power in numbers – do not walk alone. Walk with a buddie or a group of buddies.
4. Carry a torch –Swinging a big torch will take care of most major issues; blinding someone with a light will give you a chance to run away and scream. Scream Fire! LOUDLY.
5. Walk in well-lit areas and on the side of oncoming traffic. If you need to get someone’s attention you will be in their view. Don’t be tempted to take a shortcut through a dark alleyway or across the football oval.
6. Don’t talk on the phone, listen to music via headphones or any other device whilst walking. You can’t hear someone approach you from behind or notice oncoming traffic if you’re staring at your phone or unable to hear outside noises.
7. Let things go! If someone makes a rude or vulgar remark, just keep walking. Nothing anybody says to you in the street is worth getting hurt over.
8. Pay attention to your instincts. If it feels bad, it probably is. Stay away or walk away.
Call 000 for emergencies or 02 6456 2244 to reach the Jindabyne Police Station. Put this number into your phone, so you can call them quickly if need be.
Jindabyne Night Bus

Have you noticed a fellow employee going above and beyond their usual daily duties? Did you know you can recommend them for Perisher money? Perisher money is a reward system in place that gives employees who are delivering outstanding service to customers both internal and external. If you feel someone is going above and beyond, simply notify your Manager and put in a recommendation for them. Perisher money is uploaded onto the recipient’s season pass for them to use at any Perisher retail or Food & Beverage outlet.

Guest Feedback - Shout out to our Awesome Ski Patrollers!
Props to Jack and Jacob from Ski Patrol last week!
“Thank you to the ski patroller; Jack (USA Tahoe area) and Jacob who provided me with excellent care and attention last Thursday when I dislocated my shoulder at Blue Cow. Jack was incredibly patient and reassuring during the time it took to get me to the ambulance. Their care and expertise was greatly appreciated.
Kind regards and I do hope you enjoy some ‘down’ time on the slopes this season.
