Mt Buller has updated the details of their planned opening and season for 2020. Among the key takeouts, season memberships will be honoured – they are the first major resort to do that.
By contrast, as reported yesterday, Thredbo are not doing season passes this year. For Vail Resorts (Perisher, hotham, Falls) the decision will be made by 15 June is the latest info there.
So props to Buller! The details remain to be filled in as to number limits and more, which of course will in turn influence how much you can use your membership. Only the briefest details announced so far.
Here is the full statement:
We WILL be skiing and snowboarding in 2020 and are working to Monday 22 June for commencing the season!
There is a lot to work through before the lifts can turn. The finer details of our COVID-19 Safe Plan are being worked through addressing capacity management for transport, food & beverage outlets, accommodation, ski lifting and lessons to ensure we can operate safely.
We are delighted to confirm Mt Buller Season Membership passes will be honoured this season. We are also able to confirm we will commence the season with private lessons available from the Ski & Snowboard School.
While we finalise operational details and capacity limits there is a pause on the sale of lift tickets and lessons. We expect to resume the sale of online products after the Queen’s Birthday long weekend and will share an updated notification with you when they are available.
The ‘new normal’ in 2020 will mean the full range of products and services may not all be offered as we adapt to the restrictions.
Hotels and some private accommodation are now taking bookings for this winter.
