The Skitube in Perisher, Australia, is a Swiss-designed mountain rack-railway that takes skiers from Bullocks Flat below the natural snow-line outside the Kosciuszko National Park to Perisher Valley. From Perisher Valley, a second train also travels to Blue Cow.
The Skitube started operations in 1987, and it remains the most popular means of reaching the Perisher Ski Resort, taking 4,500 pax an hour up the mountain. After 36 years of operations, it was time for an update, and two artists, Mike Shankster and Arina Apostolova, were called to spruce up the train’s exterior.
Ariana shared the outcome on her Instagram Page, and it looks fantastic! I cannot wait to see it in person. Let us know what you think of the makeover in the comments.
