Perisher named as finalist in ski resort awards

Perisher, one of Australia’s largest ski resorts, has again been nominated as a finalist for Australia’s Best Ski Resort in the 2017 World Ski Awards. Perisher has won the prestigious title three times in recent years, including in 2016.

The World Ski Awards is the only global initiative to recognise, reward and celebrate excellence in the best ski tourism organisations across the globe. In its fifth year, the World Ski Awards aim to drive exceptional standards and reward organisations that are leaders in the ski tourism industry.

Perisher is one of the country’s largest ski resorts with 1,245 hectares of terrain, serviced by 47 lifts in the four resorts areas of  Perisher Valley, Blue Cow, Smiggin Holes and Guthega offering  over 100 groomed runs, and seven award-winning terrain parks, including Australia’s only half pipe.

Perisher’s chief operating officer, Peter Brulisauer, said: “We are thrilled to once again be nominated as a Finalist in the 2017 World Ski Awards. All Perisher staff have done an amazing job again through the entire winter in delivering experiences of a lifetime to guests visiting Perisher.”

Perisher has seen the best snow conditions in 17 years, with over two metres of snow falling in August and a further 180cm through September.

The winner of the 2017 World Ski Awards will be announced at the World Ski Awards Ceremony held on November 17 to 19 in Kitzbühel, Austria.
