Snow extends ski holiday season

Perisher has experienced an incredible spring snowfall over recent weeks, with more than 120cms of snow falling in the resort providing the best snow for all skiing and boarding conditions since 2000.

Perisher saw over two metres of snow fall throughout August, offering some amazing conditions across the four resort areas of Perisher, Blue Cow, Smiggin Holes and Guthega. Whilst guests thought August was the best month of snowfall in some time, spring has trumped winter with a further 1.2 metres of snow fall providing the deepest snowpack since the 2000 winter. This snow depth of 233cm, as reported by Snowy Hydro, ensures excellent skiing and snowboarding right through to the end of the season.

Perisher’s sales and marketing manager, Richard Phillips, said: This snowfall is the best we’ve seen in years. To have this much snow fall in the early part of spring is sensational. The best since 2000! We have extended our season until Sunday 8 October and this new snow will ensure great conditions through to the end of the NSW school holiday period.”
