You know it’s coming up to the Aussie ski season when the vehicle season permit gets launched.

This year the season permit again covers all six of Victoria’s alpine resorts for the entire 2024 ski season.

The introduction of the All Resorts Season Permit follows a customer survey conducted by Alpine Resorts Victoria among resort-specific season permit holders and long-stay visitors. 73% of respondents said they would visit resorts they do not usually visit if the permit was introduced, and 48% would visit a resort they had not visited before.

It offers unlimited access to the resorts for those that visit multiple Victorian alpine resorts.

“We know that many seasonal visitors and regional locals visit multiple resorts during winter, and we’re pleased to support them with the All Resorts Season Permit,” said Amber Gardner, CEO of Alpine Resorts Victoria (ARV).

“The permit also simplifies the resort entry experience, with guests only having to purchase one permit for the entire season.”

Priced at $1078, the All Resorts Season Permit will go on sale on Monday 4 March, both online and at Alpine Resorts Victoria visitor centres.

For guests planning to visit only one resort this season, the traditional resort-specific Early Bird Season will be available on Monday 4 March, giving everyone the chance to lock down the best price on resort-specific Season Permits.

For the first time all ARV resort Early Bird Season Permits will be one low price, $500 and available online only.

Guests are encouraged to buy before 11 April, when the resort Season Permits will rise to $599 if bought online and $785 if purchased by phone or in person at the resorts.
