Perisher today

The Temps Have Dropped for 15cm Overnight!. After a day of wild winter weather yesterday, Mother Nature has started to redeem herself, with 15cm of fresh flakes overnight, a further 5cm throughout today and cold temps meaning our base is firming up for some great action on the slopes! There are some winds predicted to hang around, and some lifts may go on hold, so keep an eye on the lift status for the most up to date information.
