The NSW ski season will be going ahead, with COVID-19 restrictions in place. But before we get into those, put June 22 on your calendar for Thredbo and June 24 for Perisher.
At Thredbo, the daily capacity will be reduced by up to 50 percent, meaning fewer people on the slopes and in lift lines. Unfortunately (and understandably) there’ll be no season passes, and guests will need to pre-purchase lift tickets. There’ll be 1.5-metre social distancing measures enforced in lift queues, and only two people at a time allowed on quad chairs and in the Merritts Gondola, and one person per t-bar.
If you need a Thredbo lesson, you’ll have to book a private one, with group lessons unavailable. Thredboland is also currently off the cards, although watch that space. All eateries will have the NSW Government social distancing measures in place in regards to seating, while there will be regular sanitisation of chairlifts, gondola cabins, and hire equipment.
Perisher skiers and snowboarders will also see social distancing and enhanced cleaning measures in place around the resort, with more details expected closer to the season start.
