Perisher Season Open Now, Events Back for LWE

Perisher normally open early whenever they can these days – like May 31st in 2019 – and they are back with a bang today to kick off the 2021 season. Front Valley with a nice park set up already kept locals happy.

For the rest of us who have to travel, the LWE is looking good with snow in the forecast and events back!
