Perisher has begun making snow! Perisher’s snowmaking team fired up the snowmaking system early this morning for the first time in 2015. Recent cold temperatures have created the perfect conditions for our snowmaking team to begin building the resort’s base in anticipation of opening weekend, June 6, which will mark the start of the Australian ski season.
John Palmer, Perisher Snowmaking Manager says, “The first snowmaking days of the year are always an exciting time. It generates lots of talk about the upcoming winter right through the industry. Perisher makes the most snow in Australia providing the best possible conditions for our guest’s right through the winter, and it’s nice to get an early start. We will continue to make snow at every opportunity now to make sure we kick of the season with good conditions for all.”
Perisher has invested over $25 million in snowmaking upgrades in recent years with the snowmaking system now covering 53.4 hectares across the resort. 236 snow-guns are spread across Perisher Valley as well as Smiggin Holes and Blue Cow. The recent upgrades have seen much of the snowmaking system become automated allowing Perisher to make even more snow across the resort and Tube Town to enhance our guests snow experience. It also ensures that Perisher continues to make snow more efficiently.
