OAKLEY® COMMUNITY DAYS RETURN TO THE PERISHER SLOPES
(29th July - 1st August)
Snow fans and visitors to Perisher will be able to ride along with some of the world’s most exciting snow athletes, as well as test the iconic Oakley Prizm™ Lens Technology on the mountain.
The action-packed weekend will showcase the best of Oakley snow gear, accessories and outerwear in Australia’s favourite snow resort, Perisher. Oakley events will include a variety of on and off mountain experiences including an Oakley kit demo tent, an Oakley scavenger hunt where visitors will be in with a chance to secure a goodie bag of Oakley product, an ice sculpture reveal, and the highly anticipated athlete-led community run on Saturday afternoon.
Alison Ible, Senior Brand Manager, Oakley said: “The Oakley Community Days are a chance for our brand to get amongst the snow community. The weekend is a celebration and gathering of snow lovers of all levels. We get to hit the slopes with Team Oakley Athletes, whilst getting the opportunity to put new gear to the test, see our kit in action, and of course gather a bunch of good people together for a good old fashioned shred session. We’re excited to be in Perisher this season, and can’t wait to take over the mountain for the weekend with plenty of activity happening on and off the slopes. If you’re in town during the last weekend of July, be sure to check out our Community Days. You won’t regret it.”
Maddi Ventura, Field Marketing Manager at Perisher: “We’re excited to welcome Oakley to Perisher for what is sure to be a really fun weekend! We’re looking forward to celebrating our continuing partnership by putting on some awesome events for guests in-resort.”
With a focus on involving local snow community, joining visitors will be world class Oakley athletes include snowboarding prodigy, world record holder and Olympian Valentino Guseli, Australian freestyle skier and Olympic gold medalist Jakara Anthony, Olympian and Winter X-Games snowboarder Jesse Parkinson, Chinese Olympian snowboarder Rong Ge and surf legend and Olympian, Julian Wilson as they join the Oakley Community Days to tear up Perisher’s award-winning snow parks.
Valentino Guseli, world record Oakley snowboard athlete quote: “I’ve been hitting the slopes at Perisher since I was a toddler, and it’s where I actually set foot on my first snowboard. I’m incredibly proud to be a part of the Oakley family, and being able to enjoy the mountain with friends, family, fellow athletes, and the snow community is what this sport is all about. Oakley has been hugely influential in my snowboarding career to date, and I can’t wait to soak up the good vibes of the Community Day.”
