Perisher ski field in Australia announced over the weekend that they would be opening a full week earlier than scheduled. As a result, they will be first to kick off the southern hemisphere ski season when their lifts start turning on Friday, June 4th, 2021.
We couldn’t wait to welcome you back so we decided to open early! That’s right, PERISHER IS OPEN FROM FRIDAY 4 JUNE!
We’re not saying drop everything but, drop everything! The story began a long, long time ago…okay not that long ago. But basically, our Mountain Operations team have been going back and forth in hard negotiations with the gods to organise a colder than average month of May.
Success! With cool nights set as the new normal, and another top-up on the way this week, we’re excited to kick things off with a bang on Friday 4 June.
You heard us! It’s time to get ready for some PRIMO early-season skiing and boarding.
Perisher will open Front Valley for skiing and snowboarding with the Village Eight Express turning for the first time in 2021 with a beginners carpet also open. The Mitchell T-Bar will then open the next day on Saturday, June 5.
