Hopefully some of you out there have managed to get up to the mountains this weekend.
Perisher wrote to us yesterday to advise that they have now opened all four resort areas, after Guthega made its season debut on Saturday.
Last week saw 82cm of snow fall which set up the resort to open a large amount of terrain. Mother nature has been very kind this year allowing most resorts to open a wide range of terrain; the most they’ve been able to open this early in the season for 18 years.
In fact, yesterday saw 33 lifts spinning across the Perisher with links between Perisher, Blue Cow and Guthega allowing skiers and snowboarders to move freely between the mind-boggling amount of terrain on offer. Excellent skiing and snowboarding conditions prevail this weekend and the consistent clear sunny days and cold evenings have allowed the snowmaking teams to pump out snow night after night.
What a great start to the season. Let’s hope it continues. Send us your images and stories if you’re lucky enough to be in the mountains.
The SRA team.
