Development of a new Alpine Resorts Strategic Plan

The ARCC is developing a new alpine resorts strategic plan entitled, "Alpine Resorts Strategic Plan (2019) - responding to a changing climate". We are inviting all stakeholders to have their say on the future direction of Victoria’s Alpine Resorts through our Engage Victoria site.

On the Engage Victoria site you will find our stakeholder survey alongside a range of background information and links to some of our previous studies.

Winter 2018 Fact Sheet 

During the 2018 winter season the resorts received a total of over 982,000 visits and over 1.7 million visitor days.  Visitation in 2018 was the highest it has been since comparable records were first collected in 1980.
