Winter is just around the corner and the recent cooler temperatures and early snowfall in parts of Australia bode well for this year’s ski season Down Under. While the Australian ski industry pulls in around $1bn each year, you don’t have to spend big on a trip to the snow, research by Your Money Magazine has found.

Comparing packages and prices at 11 major resorts in Australia and New Zealand for peak-season dates in July and August, each resort was given a score based on key attributes including cost of travel and accommodation, equipment hire, lift passes and the all-important quality of skiing. Some of the results were surprising.

Managing editor of Your Money Magazine Jackie Pearson said there are some incredible value picks for those willing to look for them.

“The strong Aussie dollar means New Zealand is more affordable than in previous seasons, but some Australian resorts also rated really well,” Pearson said.

“As well as the costs involved, you should also match the resort to your level of skiing experience. The ratings table in Your Money Magazine has all the details to help you choose the best snow holiday for you.”
