Vail resorts have to get people to go to Falls/Hotham in Sept apart from few local weekenders.All good ideas but I still think the economics don’t stack up especially the model where you need a package to entice people to come. Think package = discount.
Feel free to approach Alliance/VA but I suggest that VA are rationalising their offerings and trying to get rid of marginal operations.
They also need Qlders to come back to their resorts in Vic.
At present getting virtually no revenue from Qlders.
A package can just hide the fact, that they might be discounting lift tickets & thereby making any charter flights work.
$399 return BNE/ABX/BNE doesn’t sound too bad to me, cf. fares to ZQN & skiing is much better in OZ than NZ.
Not sure what cheapest fare BNE/SYD/ABX/SYD/BNE is, but suggest it might be over $400, very few seats at that price, not whole aircraft & timings might be ordinary.
If they said $699 air/transfer/lift tickets for as long as you stay, that would be an incentive to go to Falls/Hotham rather than NZ.
