Aussie Ski Resort Thredbo Confirms 2020 Opening Day

As parts of the Southern Hemisphere have already announced no ski season this year, there is still some hope out there. Thredbo Resort in New South Wales, Australia has confirmed that they are planning for a June 22nd opening day. 

The resort's GM, Stuart Diver, made the announcement via a video that was released to the resort's social media pages.

Just like the mountains here in the U.S. that have begun to reopen after COVID-19 orders, Thredbo will be looking to have many of the same guidelines in place. These include purchasing tickets and passes prior to arrival at the mountain, limiting the number of visitors to the mountain each day, having limited services on-site, and asking that all that are able to visit practice social and physical distancing while enjoying the snow.

"To enable the resort to open for skiing and snowboarding, we will be rolling out a revised operating model that has been developed under the advice provided by the NSW Health Department and the State and Federal Governments." - Thredbo Resort Website

Now, for those reading this in the Northern Hemisphere, please do not try to book your time at the mountain. Though there are many folks here in the north that like to spend their summer in the Australian winter, travel restrictions are likely to prevent that for 2020. Australians also need to adhere to local and national travel guidelines when visiting any resort that will open for the season.

For those that are able to take advantage of the coming 2020 season, please make sure you do so safely and responsibly, as well as following the guidelines the mountain needs to adhere to reopen.
