    Good Afternoon from Perisher where we are very excited!

    We are Opening Early! With over 60cm of snowfall in the past 3 days and much more in the forecast the call has been made to start the lifts spinning for guests, getting the 2019 season underway this Friday 31 May!

    Since early Monday morning we have experienced extreme blizzard conditions and this continues to deliver the good stuff across the resort. Last night we saw a further 20cm of snowfall throughout all 4 resort areas of Perisher Valley, Blue Cow, Smiggin Holes & Guthega. It is currently still snow heavily and there is no sign of it slowing down with more snow predicted tonight & into tomorrow.

    Seeing this much snowfall in May has allowed us to open the resort early, allowing guests to begin ski & snowboarding for the 2019 season. Perisher is renowned and proud to offer the most reliable conditions to our guests. We hope that these great early season conditions are a sign of things to come as we get prepared for another fun filled winter.

    If you’re a skier or boarder, get your equipment sorted and get prepared for some sliding. It’s snow go time!

    Is this weekend free?
    Pretty sure it was in Buller in the May 2000 dump.

    I wonder if Perisher and Buller will compete to open 5 minutes earlier than the other?
