Perisher's first ever Slush Cup is coming!

Perisher Slush Cup

14 July 2023

We are extremely excited to announce that we are hosting Perisher’s first ever Slush Cup this spring! With three huge events spanning three days, Perisher will be alive with springtime delight as we farewell another awesome winter.

Whether you’re a skier, a boarder, or just here to have a good time, you’re invited to join us from 29th September – 1st October to carve, skim, and jump your way to ultimate glory. Pick an event or, – should you accept the challenge – try your luck at all three!

29 September – The Dash

Reminiscent of Perisher’s iconic ‘Dash for Cash’, The Dash is the ultimate test of endurance, strength, and grit as skiers and snowboarders navigate a long, multi-stage course. We’re talking lung-busting ascents, challenging traverses, and daring downhills all while trying to negotiate a series of natural obstacles. ‘At what cost?’ we hear you ask. Well, not only will you be a part of Perisher’s first-ever ‘The Dash’, there’s also a whole heap of prizes at stake including good, old-fashioned cash.

Date: 29 September

Age requirement: 14+

Discipline: Open to both skiers and boarders

Categories: Junior (14-17), and Open (18+)

Registration: $25

30 September – Banked Slalom

If you’re a fan of a bumpy ride, you’ll love our Banked Slalom. Not a competition for the faint-hearted, Perisher’s Banked Slalom will be full of plenty of berms, jumps, and bumps to keep the adrenaline pumping. You’ll have just two shots at being crowned Banked Slalom royalty, with your best-timed run counting towards your score. It wouldn’t be a competition without prizes, and there will be plenty as well as goodie and merch giveaways throughout the day.

Date: 30 September

Age requirement: 8+

Discipline: Open to both skiers and boarders

Categories: Grom (8-12), Youth (13-14), Junior (15-18), Open 18+

Registration: $25, free for Groms

1 October – Pond Skim

We’re sending the season out with a splash by bringing back a fan favourite: the Perisher Pond Skim. What’s more fun than launching yourself down a run into a pool of freezing cold water? You’ll want to dust off your best costume and bring your skimming A-game with prizes for best fit’, trick and, – always a crowd pleaser – best wipeout. We have you covered if you’d rather stay dry though, with a heap of entertainment and giveaways on offer throughout the day for both spectators and participants.  

Date: 1 October

Age requirement: 10+

Discipline: Skiers & boarders

Categories: Grom (10-13), Junior (14-17), Open 18+
