  1. Snow forecast logo 2Snowline Ski Centre Smiggin Holes: Saturday 1st October. Out our front window this morning. The temp is 0. What a morning !! Another 5cm on top of the previous 12 and still snowing. 18 lifts are expected to operate with 20 groomed runs. Lots of dry stashes in the trees but stick to the groomed runs again today. Goggles and neck warmers a must. Visibility will be low due to snowfalls. Rug up and enjoy this sensational day.

Other resorts in Australia - New South Wales are reporting: powder (1) / good piste (2)

Visitor Reviews of Perisher

Anne Bourke from Australia writes:

Look out for "The Pole Planters Ski Team 2012" - week commencing 12 Aug 12, we have definitely timed it right with this latest dump. We have skied Perisher on about 6 occasions and have enjoyed it immensely. My son Sean has cerebral palsy and last year he skied unaided after the wonderful instruction from the Adaptive Ski Instructors. The staff all over the mountain make our holiday a wonderful experience. The Man from Snowy River Lodge is a home away from home, and I agree with previous reviews, if you get up early and plan your day, you can miss the queues. If the weather closes in there is always somewhere to ski. We are Queenslanders and we love coming to this winter wonderland. Two more sleeps. Yeehaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!
