Brighton Ski Resort is facing an avalanche in northern Australia, and some guests say they are unsure if they can get out.
Brighton Resort in the Australian state of New South Wales, located in the foothills of Mount Dandenong, is home to the world’s largest and most popular ski resort.
Brighton has an average annual resort occupancy rate of 9.3 percent, and the resort has a total of 534,000 skiers, snowboarders and snowboard boarders.
Brightons ski lifts are also among the world-famous and well-known, with skiers and snowboards being the most popular sport in the resort.
The resort has over 300 ski lifts, and each lift is rated by the International Snowboard Federation.
Brightondas resort has two major ski lifts: one located at the base of Mount Dunstan and the other at Mount Dunbar.
The Dunstan lift is accessible from both the base and the main lifts.
The Dunstan Lift, located at Mount DANDENONG, has lifts rated by IWF, the International Olympic Committee and the International Ski Federation.
Mount Dunstan lifts are rated by IMG, the National Institute of Mountaineering, and they are accessible to skiers from the base, while the Dunbar lifts are accessible from the Dunstan base.
Dunstan lifts and Dunbar elevators are rated for skiing up to 11,000 meters and snowboarding up to 6,000 m, respectively.
Brightong Ski Resort, located near the southern tip of South Australia, has an annual resort attendance rate of about 12 percent, but has a much higher rate of avalanche deaths than the rest of the country.
In a December 2016 study, Brighton ski resorts reported a rate of 13.4 avalanche deaths per 100,000 people, or 5.8 fatalities per 1,000,000.
Brighton is located at an elevation of about 14,800 feet and the peak of the South Australian high-altitude ridge.
The average annual death rate for Brightons ski resort is 9.6.
Brightontas death rate is also much higher than other resort in Australia.
Deaths per 100 thousand people in Brighton are about 14 times higher than those in Tasmania, which has an overall rate of 0.1 avalanche deaths.
Brighten’s death rate per 1 million people is almost twice that of Tasmania.
Brights rate of deaths is similar to the rate in Tasmania.
Avalanche death rates in Australia have fallen since the peak in the late 1970s, but Brightons rates of death are significantly higher than Tasmania.
Brightons death rate peaked in 1998, and has fallen about 20 percent since then.
Brightonte has an avalanche-related death rate of 3.5 per 100 million people.
There are about 1,100 people who are seriously injured in Brightons avalanche-caused fatalities, according to the Royal Society of the Medicine Arts.
Brightonian Resort is one of the most prominent and popular ski resorts in Australia, with about 40 percent of the world population that has a skiing vacation.
Brightondas annual average annual attendance is estimated to be 9.4 percent.
Brightondo’s annual average daily resort occupancy is more than 10 times that of the average for the entire country of Australia.
The annual average peak resort occupancy for Brightondons is about 9.1 percent.
Some Brightondos resort guests say the resort’s skiing has been compromised by the avalanche danger.
Brightonda residents said they did not know if they could get out of the resort after the avalanche.
According to the Australian Snowboarding Federation, Brightondans ski lifts have been inspected for avalanche safety by the World Avalanche Centre, but the organization has no data on how well the lifts were rated.
If the lifts are not rated by ASX, Brightontas rate of death rate may be a reflection of the avalanche hazard and the number of people who were injured, the Snowboard Australia website said.
Brightona has a high mountain area with an elevation in excess of 12,000 feet.
The highest peaks are Mount Dunstra and Mount Dunmar.
The avalanche that struck Brighton in December 2016 killed one person and injured more than 100 others.
It was the first avalanche in Australia in more than 50 years.
