Well, the 2010 New South Wales Snow and Skiing season is just around the corner again and everyone is ready for the fun and frivolity to start. In the year of the Vancouver Winter Olympics and the sensational TV coverage it will receive, it is expected that the Australian season will be one of the best ever with tens of thousands of new skiers travelling to the NSW ski fields to learn and participate in the downhill and snowboarding disciplines they have been seeing on the TV. Thredbo and Perisher Valley ski and snowboard operators are gearing up for a bumper season and all the necessary equipment like ski lifts, snow ploughs, snow cannons and the like are all being checked over to help provide a trouble free season. Lots of new hire equipment has been ordered to provide for the expected lift in visitor numbers. Everyone in the industry is expecting a bumper season.

Perisher Valley accommodation providers are already open for bookings and this year you had better book early. The GFC has seen to it that there is not much in new accommodation available and the same story is evident at the Thredbo accommodation booking websites. Traditionally, when El Nino weather conditions prevail and the winter months are drier, the ski resorts have reported excellent snow conditions so everything is lining up to make 2010 a fantastic year with moderate El Nino conditions forecast for 2010.

There is going to be plenty of on snow entertainment for snow field visitors as well. The ski season opens in Thredbo on the 12th of June 2010 for the Queens Birthday long weekend and before the season you will be able to take part in the 16th Thredbo Blues festival if you come on the 15th to the 17th of January. The Thredbo Jazz festival is a bit later running from Friday 30th of April to Sunday May 2nd 2010 and the Perisher/Snowy Mountains Music Festival will run from June the 11th to the 14th June to coincide with the season opening. Throughout the season there will be numerous special events that are both of a serious and novelty nature with fun days mixed with downhill and terrain park events for the more serious skiers and snowboarders.

Getting to the New South Wales ski fields is easy. You can fly in to Cooma or Canberra and then catch the snow bus or you can drive down from Sydney. There is plenty of on snow accommodation in both Perisher or Thredbo or you can stay off snow in Jindabyne and commute to the snow on a daily basis either by shuttle bus or on the ski tube. A great website to visit to help you decide where to go and where to stay is
