Another awesome season at Perisher has come to a close and we wanted to share some of the highlights from a big 2015!
This year Perisher guests have accumulated over 1.2 Billion Vertical Meters collectively and the most popular resort area this year was Perisher Valley.
Perisher worked alongside Mother Nature this year to offer everyone unforgettable skiing and boarding conditions across the most diverse offering of terrain in Australia. We saw some huge snowfalls across our four resort areas, and it was a big season for our snowmakers who broke the record for the amount of snow made in a season.
Whether you left work on a Friday afternoon to be here for the weekend, put in for some leave to spend a week with us, or left the rest of the world behind and enjoyed the whole season; we would like to say thank you!
To all the new comers, we hope learning to ski or board has sparked a fire in you that will last a lifetime. To those who return to Perisher time after time, we hope you found some new favourite runs and clocked up your Dashboard Stats! To everyone that came to Perisher this season, we've loved watching your big airs, big stacks and big smiles in your #perisher photos.
Thank you for sharing your experiences with us!
This season we told you the story of Mrs Savage, who recently celebrated her 90th Birthday. Mrs Savage travels to Perisher every year to ski with her old friend Franz, who's a Perisher Ski Instructor. Franz and his good mate Christian, both Perisher Ski Instructors, celebrated 50 years of working at Perisher this year and are living proof that age is no barrier when it comes to shredding around the mountain, and we would like to say a big thank you for reminding everyone of this.

Along with the terrain parks, our awesome race department worked their magic so that the worlds best Moguls and Alpine athletes had the best courses set up for training and international FIS competitions.
