The Australian ski resort of Charlotte Pass has announced a AUS$10 million ten-year capital investment programme.

Upgrades include the installation of a brand-new surface lift towards Mount Stilwell and the replacement of Basin Poma with a new surface lift tailored specifically to beginners and with greater lifting capacity. A new surface lift towards Mount Stilwell will also be constructed, expanding the skiable area at the resort.

The snow season will be extended to operate from the June to October long weekend each year, with the installation of automated snowmaking to cover the Kosciuszko Triple Chair (to Mid-Station), Kosi Carpet and Basin Poma areas. This will entail the construction of a new pumping station, new underground piping and electrical cabling.

Kevin Blyton, Chairman of the Blyton Group, said: “Today’s announcement demonstrates our commitment to the long-term growth of Charlotte Pass Snow Resort. We believe this investment over the next 10 years will transform Charlotte Pass, building on its legacy as an on-snow experience like no other”.
