Australian Ski Season Confirmed

Some bluebird days ahead (we hope) … also, queues.

The NSW government has today announced that the state’s ski fields will re-open on June 22 – matching the date set by the Victorian government for its southern slopes.

NSW Deputy Premier, John Barilaro, flagged multiple restrictive measures that will operate across the prominent NSW resorts, stating, “while many people are eager to return to the slopes, it’s important that visitors can enjoy themselves safely and responsibly.”

Some of those measures will likely include an inability to rent clothing and helmets alongside an expectation of long lift queues and, potentially, an end to group ski lessons.

“Resorts are going to very carefully manage the numbers of people who come up to the resorts,” says chief executive of the Australian Ski Areas Association, Colin Hackworth. “Social distancing will be maintained at all times so, for example, a quad chair, you will ride alone or with family members.”

Resorts across both states are currently finalising policies to ensure the safety of guests while adhering to the Government’s Covid-safe guidelines.
