    Hi all,

    I am headed up to Perisher this year to work in a resort and live there too. (Just waitressing and housekeeping)

    Just wondering what to expect and also what I need??? What sort of shoes is a main concern? I've never skied or boarded before.

    Also wondering about season passes and things I would need as these are not provided?

    Any help greatly appreciated!!!

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but you have well and truly missed the early bird halfish price season pass.

    There have been a few others asking similar questions so search for those threads for useful info.

    Maybe ask your lodge manager if there are any staff discounts available for season passes - I think they have an 'Ambassador' pass which may save you a little bit. You'll need some good snow walking boots if you go out at night, watch out for your jacket when you're in pubs, nice ones can go missing. As for the rest, get some skis & boots, get some lessons, stay healthy, don't get too drunk too often or you'll miss the freshies, ski in any weather, have fun!!

    ^^ this. But to be fair, the bar used to stay open until everyone one had decided to stop drinking. None of this 1am closing. When he was working at the snow, Nozawaman could have left the bar at 6am, gone to breakfast then straight onto the lift. Sleep at midday and do it all again the next night.
