Aftermath

Brindabella Ski Club opened its new lodge on 5 June 2004.

The Coroner's report released on 29 June 2000 said that the landslide was caused by water from a leaking water main. The landslide hit an eastern wing of one of the lodges first, which caused the nearby land to collapse onto lodges below. The State Government of New South Wales spent $40 million in out-of-court settlements with 91 businesses and individuals after the incident.

On 3 December 2004, the Supreme Court judgement blamed the leaking water main pipe and the Alpine Way road which was built on a road full of debris as the cause of the disaster. Soil creep had caused the main to fracture, which had saturated the already unstable slope that supported the road above Carinya.

A memorial service was held in 2007 to mark the tenth anniversary of the events, which included a flare run down the mountain after sunset.
