The latest tourism data from Roy Morgan shows that 49% of Australians 14+ who regularly or occasionally go skiing or snowboarding say they would like to visit at least one of the nation’s snow areas within the next two years; this is up 2% on a year ago.

Thredbo/Perisher/Smiggins is clearly the most popular Australian snow resort area, mentioned by 29% of skiers/snowboarders (up 1% point on a year ago) while other Snowy Mountains resorts are mentioned by 10% of skiers/snowboarders (up 2% points in a year). The leading Victorian snow fields have lost ground on their NSW counterparts over the last year, with 22% of skiers/snowboarders looking to visit the Victorian snow fields for a holiday during the next two years (down 2% points on a year ago). This decline has been spread across the major resorts, with all three experiencing a decline compared to a year ago. Mt Hotham continues to lead the way as the preferred snow destination in Victoria, mentioned by 11% of skiers/snowboarders (down 2% points), ahead of Falls Creek on 10% (down 1% point) and Mt.

Distrust is highest for Cricket a year after sandpaper gate

Market Research Update – Page: Online : 9-Aug-19

Australians’ distrust in Cricket is higher than any other sport a year after the ball-tampering scandal engulfed the Australian men’s cricket team and led to the suspensions of senior players. Joining Cricket with high levels of distrust are Rugby League/NRL, Aussie Rules/AFL, Horse Racing, Rugby Union, Soccer, Boxing, Tennis, Cycling and Greyhound Racing from research conducted in June 2019. Distrust in Cricket soared in the wake of ‘sandpaper gate’ and Cricket remains one of the leading sports with a negative Net Trust Score, according to the latest Roy Morgan Sports Net Trust Score survey. Although Cricket continues to have high distrust there is some good news. Women’s Cricket continues to provide a boost to the overall image of the sport, with higher trust than distrust. In addition the overall Net Trust Score for Cricket as well as for Rugby League/NRL, Aussie Rules/AFL, Soccer and Boxing have all improved compared to a year ago.
