COVID-19 Update for Interschools - 24 March
Snow Australia places the safety, health and well-being of its competitors, volunteers, parents and school communities as our prime focus.
Together with our Resort partners, we are closely monitoring the daily directives from governments, and the recommendations and policies of school systems and health authorities with regard to Covid-19. In an environment of constant change, Snow Australia and the Resorts continue to make preparations for the 2020 winter season.
We still have a number of weeks to prepare and plan our events in this evolving environment. However, regular, clear and factual communication remains essential.
To assist school communities in particular, we will provide weekly updates through our Interschools e-News communiques. These will be targeted given that the timelines for the Northern (NSW, ACT & QLD) and Victorian series of events differ.
To assist Schools in their planning, Snow Australia is pleased to confirm that should any Interschools events not proceed, full refunds will be made on all event-related payments. Further details will be provided in coming days.
Regarding accommodation bookings, we are confident that all Resorts and accommodation providers will be announcing generous and flexible refund policies.
We thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times. Our capacity and collective endeavour to welcome guests safely to the mountains in winter this year remains the positive objective.
In the meantime, lets #flattenthecurve to #protectOURseason
