Protecting our season together

An update from us

Wednesday 28 July

The Greater Sydney lockdown has been extended until 12:01am 28 August. If the stay-at-home order applies to you, you are not permitted to visit us, or purchase products from us for use during the period of the stay at home orders. Impacted guests can visit our Help Centre for more information on prepaid lift, lesson and rental product queries. 

Additionally, guests must also follow health orders and requirements from their home State as they apply to domestic travel restrictions. Please make sure to check domestic travel restrictions in your State when planning your trip and again before travelling.

The health and safety of our guests, communities and staff is our highest priority. As mandated by NSW Health, all guests able to travel must wear fitted face coverings in any non-residential indoor areas including Skitube, buses and over snow transport vehicles, unless an exemption applies to the person.

Under the current NSW Public Health Order, a fitted face covering means a mask or other covering that:

  • Fits securely around the face, and;
  • Is designed or made to be worn over the nose and mouth for protection against infection.

When wearing your fitted face covering it must be covering both your nose and mouth. Scarfs and bandanas are not considered a “fitted face covering” under the NSW Public Health Order and this also includes the use of buffs and neck warmers.

Please carry a fitted face covering with you at all times while at Perisher.

The NSW Government requires all persons visiting certain venues to check-in by scanning the QR code at the entrance of the venue and then when leaving, check out.

For all guests planning to visit Perisher please review the latest Covid-19 updates and adhere to NSW Health advice regarding exposure sites, when to get tested for COVID-19, or self-isolate where necessary. Information can be found on the NSW government website.

We’re keen to see you on the slopes, however keeping our guests, communities and employees safe is our number one priority. As the season goes on we will ensure to keep you informed on any change in our operating plans.
