Best Opening Weekend For Australian Ski Resort Since 2002-News

Posted On: 29 Sep 2019


Snow lovers in Australia will now enjoy the best ski season since 2002. Heavy snow cover was healthy enough for Perisher and Selwyn Snowfields in NSW and Mount Buller in Victoria to get their lifts running a week early. At Buller, they opened their new Bourke Street Express six-seater chairlift and Perisher also had a new lift to open which is Leichhardt four-seater chairlift.


Stuart Diver, the resort general manager of Thredbo said that they saw a record number of visitors enjoying the good early season conditions and sharing the famous village atmosphere. Thredbo on Saturday night saw a huge fireworks display had the village streets and balconies lined and the party kept going with over 500 guests enjoying the apres vibes in the village.


Perisher also focuses their limelight on music, with its annual Peak music festival running for four days over the long weekend and beyond. People call it “Australia’s Coolest Music Festival” with over 30 acts playing across 11 venues.
