Awesome family place
Ski lifts are old/under serviced and unreliable.

Well, I’ve been coming to Charlottes pass since 2013 with my family (wife and 2 daughters) it’s a great place, people here are awesome, we stay in a chalet for 7 days each time. Over the last few trips, the skiing is becoming worse and worse. Super expensive holiday, they charge full rates for lift tickets and the facility is unable to function even at a basic level. Snow patrol / lift management is under supported. Lifts are from the 1960’s and constantly fail. Not opening on time or remaining functioning with reliability. There’s only 4 lifts to maintain and upkeep. It is a pathetic failure of upper management to continue to ignore its ski guests. I don’t write a review like this lightly, this is 5 years of hoping it will improve but no.. as a family we won’t be returning and strongly advise any potential visitor, if you want to ski then look for other options. If you want a holiday in a beautiful family friendly location then Charlottes Pass is fantastic. But a WARNING IF YOU WANT TO SNOW SKI . It’s become very disappointing. For this trip, there’s plenty of snow but lifts aren’t running (there’s 1 lift called a POMA) that is running about 150m with a deep lift line, and I can walk to the top of it faster than you can get the lift there? I’m 3 days in and haven’t caught a lift yet.. I think the owner of the Charlottes Pass resort lease is squeezing chalets so they leave and they just buy them up till he owns them all, (this just happened to the iconic Stilwell lodge) THEN the lift situation will likely improve. I’m just gutted.
