Epic Australia Pass, Epic Pass and Epic Military Pass holders have been advised today that both Hotham and Falls Creek are delaying their opening until June 29. 

Word is they will bring it forward if they can, but at the moment snow conditions are not good enough to fully open after days of rain and some snow. Despite best efforts it’s not possible to open on June 24.

Pass holders were set to reserve their days from June 24 to July 12 tomorrow and while they still can for Perisher that opens on June 24, they will not be able to do that tomorrow for Falls and Hotham. 

There’s no word on Falls or Hotham’s social pages as yet as ticket holders are being contacted direct, but the Hotham website reveals the following. 

“Due to the delay in opening of Falls Creek and Hotham until 29 June, we will advise a new date that pass reservations will be able to be made at Hotham and Falls Creek.”

For those wishing to book access to Perisher the reservations will be offered in stages tomorrow, June 23, to improve the purchase experience.

2:00pm for the period 24 June to 5 July only. 

Update: The resorts will advise when July 6 to 12 reservations are available.
