Another day, another ski resort update for 2020. It feels like there’s something new every hour and, yes, it’s hard to keep up.

But if you have an Epic Pass, an Epic Australia Pass or an Epic Military Pass then you’ll want to know about this one.

June 19 is the deadline to obtain your refund for the 2020 Epic Australia Pass. If you don’t then you’ll be charged the final payment for your season pass. Oh, that’s this Friday, two days away.

Then on Monday your final payment will be processed for the Epic Australia Pass and you’ll need to have uploaded your passport style pic to your profile by then too. So smile for the camera.

On 23 June, 2020 Epic Australia Pass, 2019-20 Epic Pass and 2019-20 Epic Military Pass holders will need to select your resort where you would like to reserve your days from 24 June to 12 July.

You’ll be able to do that here.

Again, to avoid IT issues and web meltdowns, the reservations will be staggered in stages. Given the number of Epic Australia Pass holders wanting school holiday dates, let’s hope it all goes smoothly.

8.30am – Hotham

11:00am – Falls Creek

2:00pm – Perisher

You will use your Epic Australia Pass login to make your early season reservations on the resort websites, so make sure you have that handy and have tested it prior to the above times.

Right, hopefully that’s it for now. Bring on the opening days for all the resorts, we could all use an après drink about now.
