Skiable Snow Cover


Sunshine and groomed runs galore!. Perisher was blasted with cold temperatures overnight so our snowmakers turned on 165 snow guns to add a nice fresh layer to an already fantastic cover. The slopes this morning are feeling dry and thanks to our groomers the snow is packed down so this is the perfect time to get out early and carve up the slopes.There are 45 lifts anxiously waiting to get you around the four resort areas and onto over 80 groomed runs. With so much choice we have a few picks of the day, beginners can try out Early Starter in Blue Cow, for intermediates Karl's off the new Freedom Chair in Guthega and for the experts try some long turns down Hypertrail on Mt Perisher.If you are a park rider Leichhardt terrain park received a rebuild last night now with a huge range of rails and three jumps to satisfy your highflying needs.On a sunny day like today take advantage of our Dashboard Pics. Located all over the mountain are our professional photographers who will take a happy snap of you with friends and family which you can share on Facebook for free. So leave the selfie stick at home!The tobogganing area and Tube Town are open for some fun in the sun. We are heading for a top of 5degreesC and remember to put on some sunscreen today!Enjoy these mid-week conditions!

Yes, my 9 year-old thinks Zalis is "easy" too!
28/7/15 - 9:21pm
Our 14 year old decided he was going to do Kamikaze last year while we did the easy run of Zalis.

Great photos I got one from Guthega very similar today as well. I tackled Zali's for the first time last season and have never looked back. I think it looks more daunting than it is. I have now done just about every blue and double blue in the resort.

An absolutely awesome day today. Snuck up for a day's skiing thinking I'd explore more blue territory at Blue Cow and Guthega after warming up at Smiggins. Mainly clear skies, fantastic snow, and few crowds. A few pictures at Guthega follow. Oh, and a last minute decision to book a group lesson at Blue Cow paid off. We cruised down a a range of blue runs at Guthega, finishing up on a double blue, Schnaxl (didn't seem that 'double blue' to me). Following this my instructor fixed me with her level gaze and said, "I really don't know why you think Zalis is beyond you, it's well within your capabilities." Huh? That was going to be my season end goal, but thus inspired I tackled Zalis after lunch. Granted, it wasn't icy, although the snow was somewhat chopped up, but still very daunting for me nonetheless. I did it twice. Stylish? No. Fast? Hardly. But I made it to the bottom in one piece, in the process overcoming a huge psychological hurdle. Hit Rollercoaster after this, which I actually found harder, before skiing back to Smiggins via the appalling Copperhead Road. What a day - I am stoked!

Ah, now I feel better! My hip problem will improve faster than your mortgage problem. ;)

Main Range off Vista this afternoon. Always a pleasure to pause and appreciate!

Quoting Slalom: For those on the ground, any chance of Olympic opening or do we still need another little dump?
The face beneath the T-bar is good. i actually skied it yesterday, traversed / hiked across from top of the quad to a point about 20m below the t-bar bullwheel. However, the load station and track need more snow, or they would have to push an awful lot of snow around. The ground level beneath the bottom part is still a long way below the wire. One more big dump, with the right wind direction, should do it.

Well the plan for today was to take the skitube all the way to Blue Cow and head straight to Guthega. However, a groomed and empty Zali's caught my eye and couldn't be resisted. Very nice indeed. Anyway so off to Guthega I went. No crowds over here either and both the groomers and the trees between Karls and Bloody Mary were good fun. Decided on the Burning Log for lunch. That Norwegian trail down to there is a pain for boarders, seemed like as much uphill as down and I was knackeref by the time I got to the Pub. Seemed like eveyone had the same thought about early lunch and then all left at the same time making the Blue Calf T the longest line I had seen in 3 days. Back to the freedom chair and longest line of the morning (maybe 20 people) and I decided it was time to say goodbye to Guthega for now. The Ridge chair beckoned, so off I went. Lovely down accelerator and Gracie's, still soft off piste in the trees. All in all another great day on the mtn. The thought "you should have been here yesterday" did cross my mind at times, but then, I was there yesterday. With inter schools kicking off tomorrow I think a sleep in will be in order and a good check of the weather forums.

Quoting bullet: How was your windscreen ? We had a half cm layer of solid ice to chip off. And the doors were frozen shut.
Me too! Never seen it that bad (the ice layer!) Started driving out the car park and heard this funny noise - oh no i thought. Got out and a massive chuck of ice had built up between the wheel and the guard - swift kick and it was gone.

Quoting Slalom: I was hoping this was just a "deflection". Sadly a bank holiday it is. At least the whole mountain has opened up now for my arrival, so the crowds can spread out.
It kind of was! Looking less like I'll be able to get away for my dodgy long weekend now sadly. It is true though.

Quoting azzski: Stay clear next Monday - it's Bank Holiday in NSW.
