Experience of a Lifetime - It's The Vibe!

‘It's the Vibe and..., no that's it, it's the vibe. I rest my case.’ 

Perisher staff, you impressed our guests so much they sounded like they were quoting The Castle! From bouncing, happy Lift Operators, music pumping out of Jax Bar to goliath Snowmaking efforts, you put smiles on kids and adults faces and the happiness was contagious!

  • Ski Patrol’s Rohan and Amy turned a guest’s skiing injury into a highlight of their stay with their friendly and highly professional approach to the situation topped off with an Akja ride down Zali’s run!
  • Snowsports Karen’s caring, kind and very capable approach to teaching meant a first-timer amputee guest left Perisher with nothing but praise and recommendations to her friends and family.  
  • And Lift Operators, Hospitality staff and Snowmakers alike created a thrilling experience for Front Valley riders last week with many compliments on the great conditions and electric atmosphere!

Props to all Perisher staff for your efforts in making Winter 2017 so successful and enjoyable for everyone!
