Ski Australia - Tasmania

Australia - Tasmania: latest snow conditions round-up

INTRODUCTION We are reaching the tipping point in the year when northern hemisphere ski areas begin snowmaking, and in the case of some already opening for the new 23-24 season, whilst in the southern hemisphere we'll see the first areas close for their 2023 seasons. This is the start of astronomical autumn/fall in the north, and spring in the south, three weeks after the seasons changed by the meteorological measure, so for the next few months everyone is agreed it is autumn/fall or spring.

AUSTRALIA REPORT Warming temperatures as spring continues to take hold remain the main factor impacting Australia's ski areas.

Things moved quickly on Sunday/Monday with Thredbo announcing at the end of the ski day on Sunday that it was closing a fortnight earlier than expected due to the heat. Mt Buller also closed as planned, joining already closed-for-the-season Selwyn resort and Mt Baw Baw, meaning more Aussie areas had closed for the season than remained open. But the cull hadn't ended with two more of the three still going at that point first reporting steep cuts in what could still safely open and then deciding to close altogether. Falls Creek (20/45cm / 8/18"), which was among the resorts reporting snow flurries at times through the past week, first announced it was closing around half its remaining eight lifts that had still been operating at the weekend for the remainder of the season. Then announced they were bringing that end lof season forward to this Wednesday 20th due to warm temperatures ad rain forecast. Mt Hotham (15/35cm / 6/14") also announced it had lost the battle to keep terrain open around its Village chairlift at the end of last week, closing that and more, before saying it was ending kits season dearly too. So it's just the county's largest resort Perisher (30/100cm / 12/40"), just about clinging on to its metre base, that's still open, at least at time of writing. It is down to about 40% of its terrain remaining open at 24km (15 miles) of slopes. The base stats were more than double any other centre in the country though.
