Guest Feedback - Thank You Perisher Quad Express Team
Guest Comment from last week:
My 89 year old mother came with us this year and going up on the quad chair as a foot passenger was such a highlight for her. The last time she went on a chairlift was at a fair in pre-war England. I really appreciated the lifties assistance to make it possible that day (19 Sept).
