Rip in! The V8 is set to open TOMORROW!

12 June 2024

Perisher V8 Chairlift

25cm of fresh snow, V8 set to open! 

We’re super excited to announce that the Village Eight Express Chairlift will make its season debut tomorrow, Thursday 13 June! The chairlift is expected to spin from 8:30am – 5:00pm. Try your luck at nabbing first chair of the season – you might even be lucky enough to break through our official ‘First Chairlift Opening’ banner!  Plus, keep your eye out for some goodies being handed out by the Perisher team. 

After 25cm of snowfall since Tuesday morning and a solid opportunity for snowmaking tonight, Front Valley is coated in white and is expected to be ready and waiting for you to rip in tomorrow!  


It would be amiss of us to not acknowledge our hardest working lift so far this season, Carpet #3, which has dutifully served guests who have been keen to dig in over the past few days. We salute you!  

Our mountain team is working hard to open as much terrain as possible, as soon as safely possible. Please keep your eye on our Facebook or Instagram pages, or download the Perisher app for the latest news, weather, and operations updates.  

We can’t wait to see you out on Front Valley tomorrow!
