IN THE face of devastation, Selwyn Snow Resort owners are determined to return the popular winter destination to its former glory only a couple days after the ordeal.
The resort is just one of the many homes, businesses and property that could not escape the destructive bushfire that ripped through the Snowy Valley communities at the weekend.
Although the resort "suffered extensive damage" to most of its buildings, group operations manager Andrew Dunkerley said the Blyton Group will "definitely" be committed to rebuilding the resort "even better than before".
Mr Dunkerley said the company will assess the full extent of the damage in the days to come as they are unsure if the chair lift and snow making equipment were still intact.
"It is too soon to tell (if the resort will be ready for snow season)," he said.
In other news:
"We haven't been able to access the site personally ... but in the coming days we will make a real assessment on what we are working with."
Mr Dunkerley said the community's support is "overwhelming" with offers of help flooding in through social media, phone calls and emails.
"The community are devastated, but have been very supportive," he said.
