The new lift was opened by The Hon. John Barilaro, Deputy Premier, Minister for Regional New South Wales, Industry and Trade and Member for Monaro.
The new Leichhardt Quad Chairlift has brought great benefits to the resort; increasing lifting capacity in the area by a huge 75% and giving guests more time to ski and board popular runs including The Cleft, Powder Ridge, Snowy Trails and the Leichhardt Terrain Park.
The replacement of the steep, advanced only Leichhardt T-bar with the chairlift has also opened up the area to children and beginner riders, providing another option to the nearby Happy Valley T-bar.
“It’s great to see Perisher making such significant investments to continue the growth of the resort,” Mr Barilaro said
“Infrastructure such as the Leichhardt Quad Chairlift ensures Monaro has the best ski fields in the country.”
In addition to the new Leichhardt Quad Chairlift, the $4.2 million project also saw the installation of additional snowmaking machines. Snowmaking now extends from the base of Happy Valley area to the base of the new Leichhardt Quad Chairlift; this has improved snow conditions and early season access to one of Perisher’s most popular runs.
