The 2019 season has started with a bang! The first winter storm of the season has been relentless, bringing with it 82cm of new snow since last Wednesday..
And it’s not stopping there either. Pete the Frog Taylor from Snowatch is predicting another 10 cm over the next 10 days.
Joss McAlpin, Perisher, reports ‘six days of freezing temperatures, heavy snowfalls and strong winds have provided sensational early season conditions. So much so, that this weekend we are opening 32 lifts, across all four ski areas.
- Thursday – Blue Cow open for the season featuring the Ridge and Summit Quad Chairlifts
- Friday – Mt Perisher open for the season with the Mt Perisher Triple and Double Chairlifts
- Saturday – Guthega opening including the Freedom Quad Chairlift”
Perisher’s Chief Operating Officer, Peter Brulisauer, echoed Joss’ comments, indicating “the early season conditions are the best he’s seen since 2000”.
