CHARLOTTE PASS 2024 SNOW SEASON COMMENCES FRIDAY 5TH JULY 2024

Following the fire that broke out last Friday at the Charlotte Pass Sewage Treatment Plant (STP), the Charlotte Pass team have been working tirelessly to source a temporary option to enable the snow season to proceed.

Charlotte Pass Snow Resort have today announced that the 2024 snow season will proceed from Friday 5th July, in time for the start of the NSW School Holidays.

Lifts are scheduled to start spinning on Friday 5th July (subject to snow conditions).  Guest arrivals for all overnight accommodation will also commence from Friday 5th July.

Following extensive investigations, it was determined that the only viable option is the restoration of temporary services to the existing Sewerage Treatment Plant.

This has involved the purchase and rapid construction of bespoke containerised equipment to provide the necessary electrical, aeration, disinfection and treatment processes.

AKS Industries have been engaged to construct and install the containerised equipment.  Design and construction of the new equipment has already commenced, with fabrication occurring at the AKS Industries factory in Geelong.

Delivery of the new equipment to Charlotte Pass will occur the week of Monday 24th June, to ensure an appropriate period of time for the installation of equipment and commissioning of the STP prior to the resort accepting guests.

The proposal for restoration of temporary services has received the in-principal support of the National Parks & Wildlife Service, Department of Planning, Housing & Infrastructure and the NSW Environmental Protection Agency.

Kevin James Blyton, Chairman of Charlotte Pass Snow Resort said ‘I am pleased that a solution has been found to ensure the 2024 snow season can continue.  We look forward to welcoming our valued guests back to the resort.

I’d like to thank the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service for their support in leading the approval process to enable the use of temporary facilities this season’.

Angela Murdoch, General Manager of Charlotte Pass Snow Resort expressed her appreciation to AKS Industries for agreeing to undertake the project. ‘The task that AKS Industries has committed to is a mammoth one, with the construction work expected to be completed within a 31-day window.  The construction of these types of services would typically take several months.’

Guests with bookings for prior to Friday 5th July 2024 will be offered the opportunity to transfer their dates to later in the 2024 snow season, defer their booking to the 2025 snow season or receive a refund.

No public access will be available to Charlotte Pass Village until the opening of the resort on Friday 5th July.
