Snow's Here - Be Safe
Woo hoo! With the forecast calling for snow to low levels through Sunday this week be prepared for a white Jindabyne and surrounds and a slow and potentially slippery trip to work. A reminder to leave a bit early on these days and drive carefully and to the conditions.
Do Good - Zero Waste Champions
Allan Rowson, Perisher’s Snowsports Hire Manager, has teamed up with other ski resorts in Australia to ship some of their previous years' ski stock to China. Another landfill diversion pathway hire is utilising, is by donating old ski jackets and pants to St Vincent’s in Bega where there is a large demand from the local farmers for this outerwear. A great effort from our Snowsports Hire team!

Guest Feedback - Thanks V8 Crew!
Props to the team working the V8 on Saturday the 22nd June for making this little girls’ birthday extra special!
“Just a quick compliment to the crew working the bottom of the V8 today 22/6/19. I had my daughters 5th birthday party today and her and 11 of her friends skied front valley for a few hours today.
The liftys and ticket checkers was so helpful and upbeat, helped make my daughters ski party a fun day.
Thanks again, Matt.”
