It hasn’t been an easy ski season down under with snow that turned to rain and warm temperatures making it even harder to make snow.
Resort groomers, mountain operations and snow makers have been pushed to their limits and worked over time to keep runs open in the peak of the season.
Hotham announced last week they’ve done all they can but Heavenly Valley is now closed for the season after 68 days.
Perisher have now announced that Guthega and Blue Cow have also seen their last day of 2023 resort operations.
“The low snowfall, warmer temperatures & limited opportunity for snowmaking we’ve seen recently has made it hard to remember the awesome pow days of mid-June & the string of stunning bluebirds in late July,” said Perisher on social media.
“Given current conditions, it has quickly approached the time of the season when we need to wrap up operations in certain resort areas. We would like to inform you that Perisher’s lift operations in both Blue Cow & Guthega are expected to cease for 2023 from Monday 4th September.”
Perisher Valley is still open for spring riding right up until October.
