Yes, you read that right. Ski and/or snowboard with Australia’s Winter Olympians.

Now’s the chance for you and up to 2 friends to hit up Falls Creek in 2021 and go skiing with Australia’s favourite triple Olympic mogul skier, Britt Cox or marvel in awe as you hit the slopes and park with Olympic snowboarder Tess Coady at Perisher next season.

How do you get to ski and ride in the presence of such elite athletes?

Well, all you have to do is bid in the Victorian Alps Relief Auction, the industry wide online event to support the alpine communities in Victoria that have been decimated first by bushfires, then by Covid closures.

Britt Cox is an Aussie legend and Australia’s most successful female mogul skier to date. She was the youngest athlete in 2010 to compete at the Vancouver Winter Games, finished fifth at the 2014 Sochi Games and competed in the Super Final at the PyeongChang 2018 games.

If that doesn’t impress you, then know that Britt has won the FIS World Championships, been awarded a FIS World Cup Crystal Globe and has 9 FIS World Cup golds, 1 silver and 6 bronze to date. That’s a lot of metal right there.

She’s also a Falls Creek local so knows all the good spots. You can bid to “win” Britt here.

Tess Coady is one to watch! The Aussie snowboard slopestyle athlete is a dual gold medalist in Slopesyle and Big Air at the 2017 Junior World Championships. ​​ She was chosen for the Aussie Winter Olympic team in 2018 but injured herself in training in PyeongChang and was unable to compete. She returned from injury last season to win her first FIS World Cup gold.  

You could be ripping it up at Perisher with Tess in the 2020 season if you bid on her auction item here.
