Why Perisher?

Quite simply,Perisher is Australia’s favourite snow holiday destination Consisting of four distinct resort areas and covering a massive 1,245 hectares of diverse terrain, Perisher is the biggest alpine resort in the Southern Hemisphere, accessed by an incredible 47 lifts. Perisher

Blue Cow

Smiggin Holes

Guthega

The village in Perisher Valley sits at 1,720m, well above the recognised snow-line, making Perisher renowned for its snow reliability and consistency; ideal for first timers of all ages learning to ride, right up to advanced skiers and snowboarders.

Why bring a group to Perisher? Being the biggest resort in Australia, Perisher has a large variety of winter options available for your group including non-skiing/boarding activities. Perisher are experts in catering to the needs of school groups. Packages are available to suit all needs and budgets, with the option to book everything in one place. A dedicated Groups Co-ordinator will assist in the booking of your trip and one teacher is provided with a Free of Charge package for every 10 booked students. New for 2014, is the $4m Freedom Quad Chairlift in Guthega. This will greatly improve the lifting capacity for the picturesque Guthega resort area, allowing groups better access to some of Perisher’s iconic terrain.


Snow

Experience If the idea is simply to give students a taste of the unique alpine environment, choose from a combination of Snow Experiences from the following activities.

Chairlift Rides Take in the panoramic views of Perisher taking the Quad Express to over 2000m above sea level. Once at the top you can unload and enjoy some snow play and perhaps capture the moment with a photo.

Skitube Alpine Railway Skitube is a convenient and innovative train ride from Bullocks Flat through the Ramshead Range to Perisher Valley in 10 minutes. It’s then another 7 minute trip up to the Blue Cow terminal that has spectacular views. The total distance is 8.5km; 6.3km is underground making it one of the longest underground train tunnels in Australia, travelling as deep as 550m below the surface so it’s a great experience in itself.

Tube Town Tube Town has specially groomed lanes allowing fun lovers and thrill-seekers of all ages to enjoy a high-speed tube ride down the slopes and a lift back to the top, on a purpose built lift. No skill is required, just the desire to have fun.

Ride the chair to 2000m above sea level for great views
