Selwyn Snow Resort has announced that they will no longer be opening their slopes for the Winter 2022 snow season, due to ongoing challenging circumstances.
The principal contractor of the Selwyn Snow Resort rebuild project has advised that due to unprecedented recent snowfalls the project is unable to be completed by the 2nd of July.
A set of challenging circumstances lead to the decision. Record breaking rainfalls across November and December caused challenges to civil and ground work. Material supply shortage and delay in supply chains. The state-wide Covid lockdowns last year and challenging early season conditions of over 100cm of snowfall in 7 days.
Rebuilding Selwyn Snow Resort remains the top priority and all teams and contractors will continue to work hard to complete the project.
Nichole Overall MP, member for Monaro said, “Given these incredible efforts, it makes the decision not to be able to open at this time – brought on by the very thing we’ve been wishing for, record snow – even more heart-breaking, for the operators, everyone on site and the visiting public as well.
In saying that, I know things will continue to go from strength-to-strength and when Selwyn Snow Resort opens, it will offer some of the most spectacular advancements and attractions in the country that will make it worth the wait!”
