Worried about missing the upcoming ski season due to COVID restrictions? Don’t be—everything you need is right here in Canberra.

Fyshwick might not come to mind when picking Canberra’s best ski destination, but it’s true. Founded in 2018, Vertikal indoor snow sports offers the latest ski technology to create epic slopes, right here in Canberra.

The brainchild of professional instructor and coach Paolo Bellini and life-long skier Charlotte Ostor, Vertikal enables year-round skiing and snowboarding for beginners through to advanced riders, with skiing and snowboarding lessons available for all levels.

So how does one ski in Fyshwick, you might ask? It’s simple—you ski on what is essentially an enormous treadmill, where soft white nylon fibres give you the same level of grip and slide as snow.

With the pitch able to be adjusted based on skill level and activity, you’re able to replicate the length of any downhill ski slope.

Of course, an important part of ski culture is the après ski, so Vertikal also offers a bar and café, with a traditional wood-fired pizza kitchen.

Luckily, with restrictions easing from 11:59 pm tonight, Vertikal will be able to offer seating for up to 20 patrons from tomorrow, with these Stage Two restrictions Vertikal will open for ski and snowboard lessons as of Tuesday 2 June.

After you hit the slopes, relax in Vertikal’s lodge-style lounge area with a BentSpoke or Jindabyne Brewing Co beer or perhaps a local wine next to the open fireplace. Now that the Australian ski season will go ahead, it’s a perfect time to hit the slopes right here in Canberra.

Want to stay connected to fellow ski enthusiasts? Vertikal has created a Facebook group—Vertikal Snow Sport Forum—to keep the Canberra snow community engaged.
