What date do you think the snow will be good enough to ride?
Perisher open this weekend! Cold temperatures continue, snow making in full swing!!
It is only a few weeks till the official opening weekend for the 2012 snow season but with lots of snow over the weekend and continued cold temperatures, resorts are looking at opening early. Perisher will be pumping snow making this week and is set to open the gates June 2nd a week before the Queens Birthday weekend.
Following the success of last year's pre-season opening, all the proceeds from the ticket sales from the 2nd and 3rd of June will be donated to the local community, with the aim of smashing the $20,000 raised for various charities in 2011. In 2011 Perisher made the donations after its Facebook fans voted where they would like to see the money go.
"We are really excited for a great 2012 winter season and we can't wait to share all of the improvements we've made to the resort with our guests. We're also really happy to be supporting the local community by, once again, donating Saturday and Sunday's ticket proceeds" says Perisher's CEO Peter Brulisauer.
Falls and Hotham are turning on the snow making this week as well as Buller to try and give Mother Nature a helping hand. We will keep you updated with any news and updates as far as Buller, Falls and Hotham are concerned. Get hyped we are only days away really!
