10-year $10 million investment announced for Charlotte Pass ski area

10-year $10 million investment announced for Charlotte Pass ski area
July 24, 2018

Having negotiated a new lease with NSW Office of Environment and Heritage last year, the operators of Charlotte Pass Snow Resort have today announced a significant capital expenditure for the resort over the next 10 years.

The $10 million investment will, subject to NSW Government Planning approval, include significant improvements to snowmaking, new surface lifts and major refurbishments to the historic Kosciuszko Chalet Hotel.

In a press release, Charlotte Pass Snow Resort Pty Ltd (CPSR) advised that the "unprecedented investment" will see an increase in lifting capacity and the expansion of accessible terrain, through the installation of a brand-new Surface Lift towards Mount Stilwell and the replacement of the Basin Poma with a new surface lift.

As a result, CPSR anticipate that the snow season will be extended to operate from the June to October long weekend each year, with the installation of automated snowmaking to cover the Kosciuszko Triple Chair (to Mid-Station), Kosi Carpet and Basin Poma areas.

The investment will see the Kosciuszko Chalet Hotel undergo a major refurbishment of all guest rooms, food and beverage outlets.

In addition, the Charlotte Pass Oversnow Transport fleet will be expanded, with two additional Oversnow vehicles. Charlotte Pass will also be investing in a range of initiatives to improve the environmental performance of the resort.

CPRS expect that this investment will also see the development of Year-Round activation of the resort, including the construction of conference and multifunction facilities at the Kosciuszko Chalet Hotel.  The resort will also move towards the provision of Accommodation, Food & Beverage facilities Year-Round, as well as the operation of the Kosciuszko Triple Chair during peak periods.

Kevin Blyton, Chairman of CPSR owner the Blyton Group advised "today’s announcement demonstrates our commitment to the long-term growth of Charlotte Pass Snow Resort.

"We believe this investment over the next 10 years will transform Charlotte Pass, building on its legacy as an on-snow experience like no other.”

If approved, the Charlotte Pass 10 Year Masterplan will be implemented from 2019 onwards.
