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
The Alpine Resorts Co-ordinating Council together with Alpine Resort Management Boards, are committed to actively and genuinely engaging with stakeholders on decisions that affect them. We worked with community engagement and public relations specialist, Currie Communications, on an action plan to help us deliver improved and consistent engagement across the Victorian alpine sector. The action plan outlines the collaborative process we undertook to agree on a sector-wide policy and vision for engagement, along with 12 key actions we have committed to implement over the next 12 months.
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". The Alpine Resorts Strategic Plan sets the future strategic direction for Victoria’s Alpine Resorts and the ARCC has committed to offering all stakeholders an opportunity to have their say.
Our stakeholder engagement activities are now complete and the results are available from our Engage Victoria site. We would like to thank everyone that participated in our stakeholder workshops or made an online submission.
The ARCC will be using the outcomes of our stakeholder engagement to inform the development of the strategic plan which will take place over the coming months. The ARCC will continue to provide updates as the development of the strategic plan progresses.
The Report shows that there continues to be seasonal variation, however visitation growth over the summer period is continuing to trend upwards, on average by 3.1 per cent per annum since occupancy surveys commenced in 2008/09.
