Blue Cow and Smiggs are a GO!

Blue Bird at Blue Cow

19 June, 2024 

We are stoked to announce that Blue Cow and Smiggin Holes are set to open this weekend, Saturday 22nd June!

After a week of solid snowmaking across the resort and not without a mammoth effort from the entire Mountain team, Blue Cow and Smiggs are waiting for you to rip in.

That’s not all! We’re thrilled to have also opened Happy Valley this morning, meaning Happy laps are back on tap for the season.

3 out of 4 resort areas ain’t bad in our opinion, so we’ve pulled together a quick resort area guide to help you navigate your way around the mountain.  

Blue Cow

Conveniently accessed via Skitube, Blue Cow offers a great range of green and blue runs suited to beginner and intermediate skiers and boarders. For extra thrills, try out one of the fan favourite Blue Cow black runs like Kamikaze or Show Boat.

Not only does Blue Cow cater to all ability levels, it's also home to some of the best views in Perisher Valley - jump on the Skitube and step out to sweeping vistas.   

Unwind in between laps with a hot chocolate from Stamping Grounds or enjoy some apres at Top Spot Bar. There’s plenty of options to refuel too, with Blue Cow Bistro offering breakfast, lunch and snacks to keep you going!

Smiggin Holes

Smiggin Holes, affectionately known as ‘Smiggs’, is Perisher’s best first-timer and early beginner terrain.

With a heap of green and blue runs, as well as first-timer friendly lifts like two carpets and two J-Bars, Smiggs is the perfect place to find your feet.

No worries if you need help finding your feet either, Perisher Snowsports School offer beginner lessons straight out of Smiggs.

Please be aware that resort areas are not yet interconnected by ski and snowboard trails, meaning Blue Cow is only accessible by Skitube at this point. Smiggin Holes can be reached via car or the free Perisher shuttle bus service.

We're continuing to work hard to bring you more terrain as soon as safely possible. Stay updated on operations, news, and the latest offers by subscribing, by following us on Facebook or Instagram, or by downloading the Perisher app.
