There remain Covid-19 restrictions on travel and the resorts will open for regional locals only.

For the lucky ones it has been a while coming and is very welcome.

Mt Buller is open.

Earlier this week the ski resorts in New Zealand were able to re-open as we reported on PlanetSKI:

“We are so excited to once again be getting back to doing what we love,” said a statement from Mt Hotham in Victoria ahead of its opening.

“Safety remains our highest priority and our teams will be working hard to gradually reopen the resort, operating in accordance with Government requirements.

“We will  be welcoming regional Victorians with a negative COVID test back on Friday!

Falls Creek is another resort in Victoria firing up its lifts for some spring skiing and snowboarding.

It welcomed the news.

The resorts further north  in New South Wales, including the main ones of Perisher and Thredbo remain closed.

The NSW government has released its so-called “roadmap to freedom”which sets out new freedoms for people once 70% of adults in the state have had two vaccine doses.

Shops and restaurants will be able to reopen with customer limits, and schools will reopen from 25 October.

The State Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, has said that only fully vaccinated people will have access to other privileges:

·       Five visitors allowed in a home

·       20-person outdoor gatherings

·       Carpooling

·       Travel around the state
