    Ever wondered what’s involved in building a chairlift? Watch the construction of the Freedom Chairlift as we launch a camera on-site!
    While we’re enjoying the glorious sunshine of summer here in Perisher, we’re also making some terrific progress on the Freedom Chairlift construction.

    You can now see it with your very own eyes and continue to follow the new lift’s progressHEREon our snow cams page.

    The new $4 million Freedom Quad Chair is being installed at Guthega; an area renowned for its great skiing and boarding, unique landscape and stunning views - complete with outlooks of Mt Kosciuszko!

    Thanks to the hard work and great efforts of Doppelmayr and Perisher Mountain staff, the project is trucking along nicely with the top station and tower foundations in place. The slope grooming is near complete and will offer some of the best skiing and boarding in Australia in 2014.

    Keep your eye on this camera HERE for more developments.
