Police are encouraging motorists to be patient if travelling to the snowfields this long weekend with double demerits now in force.

 NSW Police launched the Operation Snow Safe campaign on today (Friday 11 June 2021) and reminded the community to have a plan, be prepared and stay safe in alpine regions during the snow season.

The official ski season commences tomorrow (Saturday 12 June 2021) and runs until October.

Police will be out and about throughout the season with a strong focus on road safety, alcohol-related crime, anti-social behaviour and personal safety.

Double Demerits are in force until 11:59pm on Monday (14 June 2021).
