Bel­gravia Leisure to man­age Mt Baw Baw

Alpine News - - On The Slopes -

THE MOUNT Baw Baw Alpine Re­sort Man­age­ment Board (BBARMB) an­nounced in late April the ap­point­ment of Bel­gravia Leisure to man­age the re­sort.

Bel­gravia have an ex­ten­sive re­sume in leisure man­age­ment and their track record in­cludes man­ag­ing over 80 fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing Lake Moun­tain.

BBARMB chair, Vicky Pa­pachris­tos, said that the ap­point­ment will al­low the re­sort board to gain an un­der­stand­ing of the re­sort’s commercial op­er­a­tions.

“We are look­ing to them to bring new ideas and ex­per­tise to help us achieve our vi­sion for Mount Baw Baw to be­come a more vi­brant cen­tre for year round alpine ex­pe­ri­ences,” Ms Pa­pachris­tos said.

“For some years the re­sort has re­quired additional fund­ing from the govern­ment to re­main op­er­a­tional.

“This fund­ing will con­tinue, but we will be draw­ing on Bel­gravia’s ex­per­tise to re­duce this bur­den on the tax­payer and pro­duce a bet­ter over­all of­fer­ing.

“Bel­gravia will ap­ply their sig­nif­i­cant ex­pe­ri­ence to man­age the re­sort and pro­duce ef­fi­cien­cies and we will work with them to de­velop a plan to se­cure in­vest­ment in the re­sort to en­sure the long term in­de­pen­dent fi­nan­cial sus­tain­abil­ity of the re­sort.”
