Snow Australia and Roy Morgan Research are making the astonishing claim that a domestic ski trip costs an average of $123 per person per day. It’s an amazing statement when you consider that adult lift tickets alone cost at least $100, accommodation in or near the snow is expensive, there’s the need to eat, plus gear hire, petrol for the trip down, National Park entry etc. If anyone can show me how to have an Australian ski trip for $123 a day, please get in touch. PS: The research claims the average length of stay is 9.4 days, which will no doubt surprise operators who generally work on a seven night guest cycle.
- Update 8/7/13: A study by TripAdvisor which compared the cost of one night’s accommodation, one day ski pass and ski hire, a meal and a beer found that Thredbo offered the best value in Australia at $649.78. That’s more than five times the Snow Australia/Roy Morgan estimate.
