    Will be getting one for my daughter over the weekend. Doing a midweek with her Monday week through to the Friday or Saturday, staying in Jindy. My Freedom Pass is a sunk cost, so at least 3 days in Perisher, maybe more depending on conditions. Gives us the flexibility to do a Thursday at Charlotte Pass or look elsewhere for a day or 2 if Thredbo or (pathologically) Selwyn have better snow after next week's weather.

    I have a good mate who is on the FIFO cycle and skis PB. Also a family PB weekend booked for late July.

    With my Bo pass and a flexi and it's all covered.

    Thank you PB.

    Next year a NSW flexi pass would be killer.

    Hi Daw,
    is the 3 days pass for 3 consecutive days only? Or any 3 days though the season, let's say 27th June, 10th July, 27th July?
    Cheers

    Works for us this year.
    Done for eldest daughter now living in Sydney.
    She won't get the days in for the Freedom Pass as it turns out with work and study.
    We where going to cancel on pass insurance .
    Thumbs up to Perisher they allowed me to roll her Freedom pass deposit onto the Flexi.
    Win Win (as they still get some $ )

    Anyday you rock up, non consecutive. Buy the pass online loads your pass and rock on up and ski.

    That's pretty cool.

    I struggle to justify a season pass as my friends ski all over.

    I do get that .
    I'm a big fan of Thredders when it's on.
    Love it since day dot back in the 70's (crikey !).
    Lodge membership , most of the crew signed up and the whole trip ( back country ) works for us these days at Perisher.

    I only really discovered Perisher last year cause my child is in the winter sports club, had a Thredbo season pass and ended up with a Freedom Flexi, between other obligations it worked out about $100 more than a early purchase season pass. This year I would say that even though I'm a big fan of Thredbo, Perisher just works for me, and I'm digging the snowmaking there right now.

    One question. Bought the flexi for my daughter and added the skitube option @ $58 for the 3 days. Now if she needs to add extra days, the blurb says $99 per day for lifts. Does anyone know if the skitube option can be added per day as well? And price?

    As I suspected the new price is now $329 but the additional days are still $99 each.

    Had to be responsible and not buy it yet, but that increase isn't terrible. I got it last year and ended up doing 8 days which was about the same as last years discount season pass. I don't intend doing that many days this year, so will just wait and see what happens.
