COVID-19 Update

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 is closed until 25th April or until further notice. 

• 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

We are nestled at the base of Porters Ski Area in the Craigieburn range, so perfectly located whether you're here for the skiing, biking, hiking, the stunning views or simply passing by. Drop in and say hello, enjoy a bite to eat and a cold drink, or maybe an awesome Underground Coffee to go to get you back on the road! 

We welcome group bookings and can host functions, corporate events and weddings by arrangement.

Your gateway to exploration and adventure


Whether you're here to ski, board, to explore the legendary Castle Hill rocks, disappear into the peaceful hiking trails, take in the stunning alpine vista, catch  trophy trout or hurtle down one of the mountain bike trails of the Craigieburn Range, we have it all to offer right on our doorstep. We are only 3km from the skifield carpark and can organise a shuttle to get you there.
