- Perisher Range Resorts Winter 2021 update – Epic Australia Pass
See attached a copy of the Press Release from Perisher Vail which includes this update:
The Epic Australia Pass provides access to Perisher, Falls Creek and Hotham for AU$949 for adults, AU$539 for students (up to year 12) and AU$739 for seniors (65 years and over), with no mountain access reservations anticipated. Opening day for the 2021 season at all three Australian resorts is currently set for 12 June. Perisher, Falls Creek and Hotham anticipate offering a full range of lift tickets, snowsports school and rental products for the 2021 season, available for purchase from late May.
“Through careful planning, in accordance with public health protocols, we are confident we can safely operate all three Australian resorts, all season long,” said Pete Brulisauer, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Vail Resorts Australia. “We do not anticipate requiring mountain access reservations this season, but should capacity restrictions change, we will adapt our systems and update our guests.”
It also notes: May 11 is the last chance to lock in the Epic Australia Pass before the price rises by $100.

- Guthega updates
Perisher Vail has provided two additional pieces of advice specific to Guthega:
- We will not be offering ski or snowboard rental from the Guthega Mountain Centre this season and will review whether it is offered in future seasons due to extremely low patronage in prior years. We would appreciate if Guthega accommodation premises could advise their guests to obtain ski and snowboard rental prior to arriving in Guthega.
- We are working towards reopening the Café in the Guthega Mountain Centre for the 2021 season to improve access to F&B and toilets in Guthega with the Guthega Alpine Inn no longer open to outside guests for lunch.
