With the slight easing of Covid-19 restrictions across the country, both the NSW and Victoria governments have released statements that the Australian snow resorts will be able to open for the snow season from June 22nd, 2020. Insert happy face here!! What that means and how that will look we still have to wait and see but one thing we now know is lifts are going to turn.
What can we expect? Social distancing is a thing and will be for a while yet. Look to have limits on how many people are allowed on the mountain per day as well as limits to people on chairlifts. I have heard anywhere from 30% to 50% capacity,but that is not confirmed at all. One thing that is exciting is having more space in lift lines so maybe we can stop people running over our boards and scratching them up and with less people on the mountain you are going to have space all to yourself. Make sure you keep an eye on all the resorts websites and social media for the latest news.
What you need to do. We are going to all be patient and flexible. With restrictions in place we may not get to go exactly like planned, but with a bumper season predicted we will hopefully get a nice long season to get out and enjoy.
Get the boards out, get the boards waxed or better yet upgrade to something brand spanking new from our 2021 range from some of the sweetest brands in the game HERE and get pumped Winter is coming.
