Why you should consider SKIING IN SEPTEMBER

22 Aug 2019 4:17 PM - Skiing in Spring near Bright

If you think skiing is best in winter, think again – a decent snow base, bright sunny days and fewer people can mean spring is the better time to take your skiing holiday. 

While snow falls and depths are hard to predict, what’s for certain is if there’s a good snow coverage at Falls Creek or Mount Hotham in September – and that’s not uncommon - it’s a great time to be out on the slopes. 

For one, there's generally fewer people at the ski fields in September, which means you’ll have shorter lift queues and more room to move on the runs. Travelling to the ski fields will be less of an issue as well, with fewer cars on the road. 

Another benefit is the weather is generally warmer, with the chance of a crystal-clear bluebird day is more likely in September. On sunny days the best skiing conditions are more likely in the morning, before the sun impacts snow quality.   

What’s more, your holiday can be more affordable if you can travel outside school holiday periods. Alpine Valley Getaways has some great off-peak accommodation offers, including pay for three, get four nights at select properties. 

Combine off peak accommodation with ski pass deals that are often available, and your snow holiday becomes that bit more affordable! Check the Mount Hotham and Falls Creek websites for more information about ski lift passes. 

You can also check the current snow base at the above websites. 

Of course, if you book your September ski holiday and the snow isn’t as good or deep as expected, there’s still plenty of things you can do in and around Bright. You can read our blog which outlines upcoming events in Bright this spring, or things you can do that don’t involve the snow.
