Snow Australia has been forced to cancel Interschools events up until July 18.
This decision was made in accordance with the COVID-19 policies of host resorts Thredbo and Perisher. Lengthy correspondence with NSW Schools Systems on the health and safety of competitors was also an important part of the decision making process.
Four events have been cancelled, the Subaru Participation Time-Trials to be held on June 21 and 28 at Perisher, the Travelplan Ski Northern NSW & QLD Snowsports Championships from July 7 to 11 at Thredbo and the Travelplan Ski Sydney Snowsports Championships from July 14 to 18 at Perisher.
The remainder of the scheduled Interschools events are to go ahead as planned, with a decision to be made in May on whether or not these events will be safe to continue.
“We appreciate that this initial decision may affect many chamber members and their businesses, and we acknowledge the wide-spread support of chamber members for our events, visiting schools, families and participants over the past 33 years.
