Will the Australian ski season open as normal on 12 June (Queen’s Birthday long weekend)?

Yes! The Australian ski resorts are planning to offer skiing and snowboarding commencing 12 June.

Will it be safe to visit the Australian ski resorts this coming winter?

The safety of visitors to Australian snow resorts is paramount. Ensuring the safety of our staff, our guests, and the communities in which we operate remains our highest priority. To ensure the safety and enjoyment of the 2021 snow season for everyone, we must all continue to follow COVIDSafe practices – stay home and get tested if you feel unwell, practice good hygiene by regularly and thoroughly washing your hands, carry a fitted face mask with you at all times and maintain physical distancing by staying 1.5 metres apart from others.

What will happen if there is an outbreak of COVID-19 and government health directives change?

Resorts are well experienced, willing, and able to quickly adapt their operations should there be changes to government health guidance.

Will I need to book and plan ahead?

Yes. With expected demand this season resorts are likely to restrict capacity across a number of services in busy times. Skiers and boarders will need to continue to plan ahead and must be prepared to book all aspects of their resort holiday in advance.

Where can I find our more information on what is happening?

All Australian ski resorts are committed to providing information to the Australian snow community that is transparent and updated frequently via their respective information channels. We encourage you to check your favoured information channels regularly and in advance of your holiday plans.
