Excitement levels for this snow season have been bigger than ever due to missed snow trips over the last couple of years, and huge early snow dumps saw some resorts open their doors early. Our travelling groups took advantage of pristine conditions and bluebird days, setting the tone for the season ahead!
If you and your students are still keen on an alpine adventure this year just like these groups, there’s still time to book. Over the last couple of years, parts of the Australian Alps enjoyed some of the best late-season snow bases in decades! September is fast becoming the perfect time for a snowsports program, with excellent conditions and a range of unique activities available. Here are the top five reasons to consider a snowsports program in September:
- Value for money
September bookings can see a huge discount off winter-rates thanks to off-peak specials. The more cost-effective your tour, the more accessible it is for your students!
Accommodation availability during the off-peak season offers greater location options and can mean the difference between a short walk or a shuttle bus to your destination.
- Extra space
With fewer people on the mountain, you’ll have wide-open spaces that allow beginners to learn and flourish, and the advanced to show off! Plus, shorter lines at the lifts mean more time on the mountain to perfect new skills!
- Ideal weather
Blue skies and warm weather aren’t the only benefits of September snowsports. Longer days allow students to maximise their learning time on the mountain.
- Extended lessons
Students can look forward to extended 3-hour lessons at some resorts including Mt Buller and Perisher that will ensure further snowsports progression and outcomes. Available during September only, these longer lessons are included at no additional charge.
