The 2015 winter season is fast approaching and as such its time to talk snow and what is in stall for the season. Firstly a huge announcement coming out of Perisher resort yesterday 31st of March. Vail resorts is in the final stages of a takeover deal with the southern hemispheres largest winter resort.  

 

What does this mean for you?

 

Lets start off with perisher’s famous freedom season pass, Now add Vail resorts infamous epic pass into the mix, which includes unlimited skiing and boarding at some of north Americas most famous and respected resorts. Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin in Colorado; Park City and the Canyons in Utah; and Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood in the Lake Tahoe area. The end result is a pass that offers skiing and snowboarding not only here in Australia but also in the USA for a very reasonable $749. So at the end of our season you have one of the hardest decisions to make where will you be heading to take full advantage of the epic deal.

 

In other snow related news the chill that you have been feeling the last week or so was the result of a little front making its way up over the south of the continent. With it a drop in temps and a light dusting over the alpine regions. Although this isn’t unusual for this time of year its always exciting and it’s a sign that we all need to get out those winter woollies out.
