Perisher Weekly Wrap Up - Week 6!

Hello week six of the winter season! As they say, time flies when you’re having fun! This week held an array of events on and off the mountain with something for everyone. We even had a small dusting of snow on Friday. This, combined with the perfect conditions for snow making meant Saturday was a delight with a fresh topping of snow, blue skies, and low winds. Mount Perisher was the place to be with short lines, light wind, and crystal-clear skies, and to top it off, hot chocolates at Eyre Kiosk!

Stace Cadet and DZ Deathrays at The Station

It was the second week The Station hosted their weekly gigs, welcoming Stace Cadet on Wednesday, and DZ Deathrays on Saturday. Both were a great success, with a healthy amount of moshing and dancing all through the night. Keep an eye out for this week's headliners in the events calendar.

Barbie visited Perisher!

It’s a bird, it’s a plane... no it's not... It’s BARBIE! Barbie made her way around Perisher on Wednesday, she booked in her rentals, went to guest services to collect her lift pass, and hit the slopes in true Barbie style. She had a splendid day in ‘the real world’ shredding up Front Valley, and perfectly executed a quadruple cork 2160 of Slopestyle terrain park, ending the day with a leisurely trip back to Bullocks Flat on the Skitube. Her adventures were recorded on our Instagram story.
