First Tracks Mornings are a truly special Perisher experience, allowing a limited number of resort guests to enjoy access to a selected area in beautiful Blue Cow riding the Ridge Quad chairlift before anyone else.
First Tracks are conducted on Sunday mornings in the months of July, August and early September, subject to conditions.
First Tracks is available for intermediate to advanced standard skiers and snowboarders with a valid First Tracks Ticket. The terrain available is not suitable for beginner skiers and snowboarders.
Purchase your First Tracks ticket from any Perisher Ticket Office by 5:00pm on the Saturday afternoon prior to the First Tracks morning you’d like to attend. Or visit our eStore to purchase on-line; once logged in look for First Tracks under the Lift Tickets menu; then simply search the date you'd like to attend, to make your purchase click here.
Pricing for 2015 will be released in May 2015.
Special Note: for Freedom Pass holders - to receive First Tracks free of charge you need to register via our online shop (do not use the link above as it will ask for payment).
Participants must catch the 7:00am Skitube from Bullocks Flat or the 7:14am Skitube from Perisher Valley to Blue Cow ONLY to access First Tracks each Sunday* (important, see note below). If you are participating in a First Tracks morning please wait on snow slope-side in front of the Blue Cow terminal after you depart the Skitube and a Perisher Ski Patrol representative will meet you and give all participants a briefing.
Note that Skitube travel is FREE of charge from Perisher Valley with a valid First Tracks ticket.
First Tracks will operate from 7:30am to 9:00am.
After 9:00am guests can access the rest of the resort, with a valid Day Ticket pre-loaded on their Lift Ticket. Or, lift access back to Perisher will be available until 9:30am on their First Tracks Ticket.
A First Tracks morning provides great skiing and boarding on untouched corduroy; often in fresh powder, while you watch the sun come up and enjoy the brisk mountain air. Enjoy!
*Please Note; no First Tracks Tickets are available on the morning of First Tracks, over the counter. ALSO, IF YOU MISS THESE TRAINS, PLEASE DON'T ATTEMPT TO CATCH A LATER TRAIN AS YOU WILL NOT BE GIVEN ACCESS TO FIRST TRACKS, AS IT'S IMPORTANT THAT YOU ARE BRIEFED BY PERISHER SKI PATROL PRIOR TO THE ACTIVITY.
