The Australian Ski Season commences from the June Long Weekend and runs until the October Long Weekend. Although we cannot guarantee specific weather conditions, below is a general outline of what to expect in an average winter season.
Value – June and Mid September to End of Season
As the name suggests our value season provides the opportunity to experience all of the benefits of an “on snow” stay at very affordable prices. When coupled with Perisher’s modern snow making technology and our fantastic family or small group discounts, June and September dates are a great option, particularly if you are new to the whole snow thing? Also keep an eye out for several resort festivals during June and September.
Mid – July
Its starting to get colder, with the chance of increased natural falls (or dumps) to transform Perisher into the winter wonderland it’s famous for. This is a very popular time in Perisher, but heaps of deals can still be found generally outside of the July school holidays. The resort also offers bonus week ticketing towards the end of July and when combined with our specials this is a great time to be in the mountains and save serious dollars at the same time.
Peak – August
What can we say about August except, SNOW, SNOW glorious snow! Traditionally this is the best time to be in the Australian Alps, with winter’s blizzards being replaced by picture perfect days and countless smiles of happy snow seekers. Even during the peak of the snow season we still have managed to defrost some of our great specials, but be quick these can go faster than Frosty on a half pipe.
Shoulder – Late August and Early September
Even though it’s just starting to warm up, there is usually more snow in Perisher now, than at any other time in the season. Whether you are a seasoned snow bunny or checking out what all the fuss is about for the first time Shoulder season usually means lots of great quality snow and even better value for money. Early September sees the beginning of spring skiing, where T-shirts replace ski parkers as the sun comes out to play.
