Porters Ski Area & Porters Lodge COVID-19 Statement




As you are now well aware, we are in challenging times, but we want to provide some reassurance to our loyal passholders, and future guests by providing information about what we are doing right now and what our plans going forward are at this point in time. We have received some enquiries about the upcoming Winter season so we are providing the following information in response: 


• Porters Lodge will remain closed under level 3, however, we are offering click & collect meals and delivery to some areas. Please refer to for more info.  


• Porters Ski Area is currently working towards our traditional opening date which at this stage is Friday the 26th of June. As we are a number of months out, it is too soon to make any announcements regarding operations; however, in the event Porters Ski Area does not open for the 2020 winter season, all prepaid 2020 passholders will receive a credit to be used for the 2021 season.


• We are staying current with all government regulations and guidance from the health authorities. Should any new regulations be put into place we will release another statement with updated information.




We thank you for your understanding while we try and navigate these uncertain times together. Further information will be provided in the coming weeks.


Please stay healthy, and look after each other. 

Thank you,
The Team at Porters Ski Area & Porters Lodge
