The countdown for winter is on and we’re busy getting the mountain ready! Only 36 days to go till Opening Weekend is here.

Thanks to freezing temperatures here in the mountains, last night was the perfect opportunity to test out our snowmaking guns. The good news? The snowmaking fleet is firing on all cylinders!

The even better news? This winter, our snowmaking fleet will be even bigger! We’ve replaced the pipeline snowmaking gun and have added three new fan guns towards the base of the Kosciuszko Chairlift, building upon the fifteen snowmaking guns added in 2022 and 2023.

With the launch of the Southern Hemisphere’s first Alpine Coaster plus our biggest ever events and entertainment calendar, this season is shaping up to be absolutely huge!

Don’t forget to lock in your 2024 winter season pass! Season passes are selling fast and availability is limited.

Experts are forecasting possible snowfall this Sunday and Monday! Stay tuned across our social channels for updates.
