New South Wales Snowy Mountains, Australia — A fire broke out overnight at Charlotte Pass Snow Resort’s sewage treatment plant in the New South Wales Snowy Mountains of Australia. No injuries have been reported.

Fire services worked for several hours to put out the blaze and the resort is now assessing damages and will provide updates next week. We will be sure to monitor this developing story and provide additional information becomes available.

Here’s the latest statement from Charlotte Pass:


Skiing in Australia was born in Kiandra in the 1860’s and by 1930 a 38-bed Chalet was built at Charlotte Pass.

It was enlarged in 1933, but burnt down eight years later. The current Kosciuszko Chalet Hotel was built on the same site in 1939.

To this day, the Chalet remains the heart of Charlotte Pass Snow Resort. Charlotte Pass has expanded significantly over the years, with the introduction of several independently owned hotels and lodges, and installation of T-Bars, Pomas and the Kosciuszko Triple Chair.

The expansion will continue as Guthries High Speed Poma will be replaced with the Guthries Double Chair.
