Alpine Resorts Co-ordinating Council
The Alpine Resorts Co-ordinating Council (ARCC) is a government agency that focuses on the strategic direction and sustainable growth for Victoria's five alpine resorts: Mt Baw Baw, Mt Hotham, Falls Creek, Mt Buller/Mt Stirling and Lake Mountain.
Three key areas of priority for the ARCC include:
Strategic positioning and advocacy
Co-operation and partnerships
Research and statistics
Season opening weekend was the perfect time for Mt Hotham to unveil a first for Australian resorts – the 2015 Hotham Disability Visitors Guide, a joint venture between Mt Hotham and Disabled WinterSport Australia (DWA).
Monique Agnew of Montrose, Victoria has won a Mount Hotham Season Resort Entry Permit and a brand new pair of K2 170cm AMP 80XTI Skis with Marker MOD MXC 12.0 bindings simply by purchasing a resort entry permit and filling out a short visitor survey online. Well done Monique!
The report shows that, in 2014, good natural snowfall and the used of extensive snow-making systems saw winter visitation to the six resorts recovering well from the previous winter season, in terms of both visitation and economic activity. Surveys also showed that there were high levels of visitor satisfaction at all resorts.
