Please note: First Tracks has now finished for the 2019 season.
First Tracks Mornings are a special Perisher experience. On Sunday mornings First Tracks offers a limited number of resort guests the chance to access a selected area in beautiful Blue Cow riding the Ridge Quad chairlift before anyone else. In the 2020 season, when snow conditions allow First Tracks will commence in Mid-July and run through to September.
First Tracks is a one of a kind experience available for intermediate and advanced standard skiers and snowboarders with a valid First Tracks ticket. Unfortunately, the terrain available for First Tracks is not suitable for beginner skiers and snowboarders.
Purchase your First Tracks ticket through Perisher's online shop or from any Perisher Ticket Office by 5:00pm on the Saturday afternoon prior to the First Tracks morning you’d like to attend.
A First Tracks morning at Perisher provides unbeatable skiing and boarding on untouched corduroy; often in fresh powder, while you watch the sun come up and enjoy the brisk mountain air. Enjoy this truly unique experience, there’s really no better way to start your day!
Continue your First Tracks experience into the Backcountry with Snowy Mountains Backcountry! Ski or board from the top of the Ridge Chair in Blue Cow straight to the Guthega Mountain Centre where a guide will be waiting for you to take you on an introductory backcountry tour.
