What's it like at Charlotte Pass resort?

Charlotte Pass is the highest resort in Australia and is linked from Perisher by a 8 km snowcat ride. Charlotte Pass has five lifts and only 200metre of vertical rise but people visit the resort as much for its charm and isolation as the skiing. The main hotel is the historic and turreted Kosciusko Chalet, a great spot for a romantic weekend. Really, Charlotte Pass offers a getaway from the busy resort of Perisher, even if it is just for one night. The solitude is something to be experienced.

Well, I’ve been coming to Charlotte Pass since 2013 with my family (wife and 2 daughters). It’s a great place, people here are awesome, we stay in a chalet for 7 days each time.
Over the last few trips, the skiing is becoming worse and worse. Super expensive, they charge full rates for lift tickets and the facility is unable to function even at a basic level. Snow patrol / lift management is under supported. Lifts are from the 1960’s and constantly fail.
Not opening on time or remaining functioning with reliability. There’s only 4 lifts to maintain and upkeep. It is a pathetic failure of upper management to continue to ignore its ski guests.
I don’t write a review like this lightly. This is 5 years of hoping it will improve but no.. As a family we won’t be returning and strongly advise any potential visitor. If you want to ski then look for other options.
If you want a holiday in a beautiful family friendly location then Charlotte Pass is fantastic. But a warning if you want to ski, it’s become very disappointing.
For this trip, there’s plenty of snow but lifts aren’t running (there’s 1 lift called a Poma that is running about 150m with a deep lift line, and I can walk to the top of it faster than you can get the lift there?) I’m 3 days in and haven’t caught a lift yet..
I think the owner of the Charlotte Pass resort lease is squeezing chalet (owners? ed) so they leave and they just buy them up 'til he owns them all, then the lift situation will likely improve.
I’m just gutted.
