Mogul Matt's - Olympian Given the Cold Shoulder!
Cold Shoulder accessible off the Brumby T-Bar has been officially re-named Mogul Matt’s.
Perisher is Matt Grahams home mountain and at the age of 19 Matt made his Olympic debut in Moguls at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games. Matt competed in the 2018 Winter Olympics earlier this year taking out the silver medal in men’s moguls in Pyeongchang. The unveiling of Mogul Matt’s happened in conjunction with the start of the Perisher Junior Mogul Championship; an event designed to introduce young athletes to the next level of competition, it provides a platform for junior mogul athletes to show their stuff in a fun competitive environment.
Further to the naming of Mogul Matt’s, Perisher today announced a $260,000 investment in snowmaking on Toppa’s Dream. This investment will see automated snowmaking installed on Toppa’s Dream allowing this iconic run to be open earlier each winter providing a longer training period for the Australian and visiting International mogul skiing teams each winter.

Feedback - You bloody champions!
Came down for a day trip from Moss vale I think about 2 weeks ago. It was just the greatest day! At first my lift pass screwed up but your office staff fixed it for me quickly and most importantly with a smile. Later in the day another staff member took a photo of my friends and I and we can see it on the app. Perisher staff really are all incredible and to deal with guests day after day is not an easy thing. Your staff and Perisher in it-self have given myself and my young family an amazing day and for that I thank you all.
Chris from Moss Vale.
