Combined with the Village Eight Express and two magic carpets on Front Valley, we have loads of terrain across two resort areas for those still finding their snow-legs! The Happy Valley T-Bar is serving up some turns on Snowy Trails, with the Perisher Quad Express Chair accessing Escapade and Goat's Gully for those wanting more of a challenge.If you're looking to flip some tricks, the PlayStation SlopeStyle terrain park on Front Valley is ideal for some adrenalin action, with an 11 metre battleship rail, 15 foot table top jump, and so much more! For those still working on their tricks, the PlayStation Yabby Flat Mini Park is the perfect spot to test out your skills. Find out more about our PlayStation Terrain Parks.For some on-foot fun, head on over to our dedicated Mount Piper snow-play zone, which is the best spot to get in some tobogganing or throw a few snowballs!With a top temp of 6 degrees today, there's no excuse to miss out on any early season turns, so we'll see you out there!Buy early and save with Perisher's 4 Day Any Day ticket this winter!

GlenH: Nice pic. That certainly shows off that "big white square" effect you get when its all man made snow!
Or WROD, as our 'Merkin cousins say.

This weekend will be interesting if the forecast high winds blow in (with the variable amount of snow forecast). Result could be messy for a while: Quad closed, no access to Happy Valley, hence everyone is concentrated on Front Valley or around Early Starter at Blue Cow ... Having said that, I may make the day trip on Sunday!

Pippenn_2K: I'm gonna set my alarm for 4.30am and see how I feel in the morning and decide then
Go skiing. As I have said in other media commitments I have never got to the end of the season and thought that I skied too many days...
22/6/17 - 7:04pm
rocketboy: take the laptop - BC centre will be delightful right now for a long working lunch ...
Day off, it's costing me ;)
22/6/17 - 7:03pm
Pippenn_2K: Thanks for the feedback. I actually have (B) already organised. 2 x 4 day trips planned/booked in July. Hopefully more snow by then. I am kinda new to Perisher so never knew that you had to actually catch a train to Blue Cow (I do have epic and skitube so no dramas). I'm gonna set my alarm for 4.30am and see how I feel in the morning and decide then. Thanks again
When it's all open you can ski between all sections of the resort. Right now you have to train it.

chicski: I might catch the tube up tomorrow, just to tick off the lift, already ticked off the carpet ;)

Ted Harper: If your choice is (A) tomorrow or (B) any time after that in the next three weeks, I would definitely choose (A). Happy Valley will only be offering that one run where the snow guns are, and it looks like only the double chair at Blue Cow is proposed for tomorrow so it isn't a lot more skiing than the last few days if you were concerned before it was too limited for you. Personally there is no way I would take the train ride up to Blue Cow just for the double chair whereas I can (and did) happily lap the quad and the V8 with and the Happy To Share crew for several days as long as it isn't crowded - which has certainly been the case so far this week. All different from the weekend though!

kylep: Much needed. Was contemplating being a noob skier the other day but was too concerned with the other noobs crowding front valley and the carpet!

chicski: Early starter will at least pull some of the beginners away from FV, it's a much gentler slope.

Here is a suggestion for whoever from Perisher mgt is reading this forum. During the main 2 week school holiday period open the V8 and Sturt at 8am. And close Front Valley at 4 pm to allow the groomers to redress the slopes for InterSchool events to start at 5pm and night skiing for the public every night at 6pm. The enclosed ski school area could easily stay open to 5pm as per usual. It will make all the difference if Perisher and Thredbo are proactive on making these school holidays and InterSchool events at both resorts a success for all their customers. I'm not paying full freight - but 1000s of other families are and they shouldn't be taken for mugs - especially when there are simple solutions to meeting excess demand against limited snow by using all that resource sitting there at Front Valley smartly.

Jasper Schwarz: Blue Cow is to open tomorrow, Early Starter double will turn it wheels tomorrow for the first time in 2017
just to show that Perisher are really putting in an effort to get as much open as possible on man-made snow these 2 pictures are just 30 hours apart - 10am yesterday and 4pm today

I have tomorrow off work. Worth the drive up from Canberra for a day trip? I was there on 10th & 11th of June and enjoyed myself but got a little bored with the same 2 runs. I see a couple more runs are open ? Happy Valley and is Blue Cow confirmed ? I'm not fussy

Ted Harper: Take a deep breath, relax, stop worrying about things you have no control over. Please. That said...
What are you hoping to see? The resort has every inch of snow open they can possibly have open and are doing everything they can to get more open, but they are at the mercy of the weather. Snow will come, crowds will come, just likely not in the right order...
