Perisher Ski Resort, Australia, announced today, September 4, 2023, that it unfortunately has to cancel the planned ‘Slush Cup’. The three-day-event was scheduled for September 29 – October 1, 2023, and was going to consist of a Dash for Cash, a Banked Slalom and a Pond Skim.

We are saddened to inform our guests that Perisher’s inaugural Slush Cup will not go ahead this season.
Due to limited snowfall, warm temperatures & the upcoming forecast, we’re unable to turn our dreams of a three-day, springtime palooza into a reality. It is with a very heavy heart that we postpone Slush Cup until 2024, however we appreciate that this year, Mother Nature had different plans for us.
However, not all hope is lost! We are working hard behind the scenes to bring you an awesome event to farewell the season. Watch this space!
*Please note that participants who have already registered for any Slush Cup event will be refunded 100% of the cost of entry
