Snow Australia has made the difficult decision to cancel the Australian Interschools Snowsport Championships for 2023.
Buller Ski Lifts’ resort operations reviewed the medium range weather forecast and current snow conditions both on the Snow Australia Interschools event sites and throughout the resort using Snowsat (snowdepth) technologies, drone footage and historical data to model the likely scenarios.
It considered the options of running fewer events, shorter events, and all possible event site locations.
It is evident, given the mild weather forecast for the next 7 days that appropriate National Interschool level courses and event sites cannot be built and maintained.
Snow Australia Interschools did explore the option of relocating the event to another resort however given similar snow conditions across the Australian resorts combined with the short lead times to arrange alternate accommodation and event workforce this was simply not practical.
Competitor and team manager lift passes that have been paid for will be refunded. Accommodation refund policies are varied and owner/provider specific and as such individuals who have made bookings should contact their provider.
Snow Australia Interschools and Mt Buller look forward to seeing student athletes from all school communities back competing on snow in 2024.
