In Victoria Falls Creek and Mount Hotham Alpine Resort announced that thanks to 9″ of fresh snow, with more in the forecast, they will be spinning lifts from this Saturday.
2022 is the first winter since 2019 that foreign tourists will be able to access resorts in the southern hemisphere; from Australia and New Zealand to Chile and Argentina.
Cerro Catedral in Argentina opened for a weekend at the end of April, but the southern hemisphere season will begin in earnest this week when Perisher, Mount Hotham, and Falls Creek open, along with resorts on Mount Ruapehu in New Zealand and AfriSki in Lesotho, South Africa.
Let winter commence!
