Skitube Timetable Reminder - Peak Season and School Holidays

A friendly reminder to all staff that mandatory Skitube days come into effect from 6 July and will be in place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 6 July to the 9 September and every day during the NSW school holidays from Monday 9 July to Sunday 22 July inclusive. This is to allow maximum on-mountain car parking spaces for our guests.

Help Make Perisher a Better Place to Work! - Employee Engagement Survey Coming Soon

On Tuesday 10 July you will be invited to participate in the Vail Resorts annual Employee Engagement Survey (EES). Staff are encouraged to confidentially share their thoughts and opinions about their experience working at Perisher.

Perisher actively encourages all staff to participate so that we gain a better understanding of how Perisher can be an even better place to work and provide our staff with an Experience of a Lifetime. If you have any questions regarding the survey please pop into the HR Office for more information.

Experience of a Lifetime!

At Perisher, our mission is simple; to create the Experience of a Lifetime for our employees, so they can, in turn, provide an Experience of a Lifetime for our guests. Here’s how some of our staff created that experience last week as per the comments sent to us by satisfied guests:

  • Perisher’s Guest Services are always so helpful and prompt at replying to questions. I wish every other service provider was like Perisher!
  • Thanks to Stacey from Guest Services for the fast and to the point reply! Looking forward to my first Australian Ski trip.
  • Our Family just had an amazing adventure at Perisher and we wanted to highlight a few individuals.  Our son James (aged 7 and a half) had a private with Rebecca, two group sessions, and then a private with Dan where in total he came down from the top valley 3 times.  An excellent result as he hadn't skied really before.  Zoe also managed to give him some of the basics to get him progressed.  When we come back to Perisher, James will continue with Private lessons as well as group.  He is 'hooked' and can't wait to get back.

Do you know someone who has gone above and beyond in their role to provide an Experience of a Lifetime? Why not nominate them for this year’s EpicService Award, Vail Resorts highest level of recognition for service, by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
