Activities Perisher Valley

 

Skiing and Snowboarding

 

Perisher is the biggest ski area in the Southern Hemisphere, with four interconnected areas (Perisher Valley, Smiggin Holes, Blue Cow and Guthega) covering a massive 1,245 hectares (that's 12.45 square kilometres), incorporating seven mountain peaks, being serviced by 47 lifts. With over 100 groomed runs, Australia's only Superpipe, and four ever evolving terrain parks, there really is something for everyone.

 

Night Skiing/Boarding

 

From 6.00-9.00 pm every Tuesday (all season) and Saturday (July and August) Front Valley lights up for night skiing and boarding on the Village 8 Express.

 

Cross Country Skiing

 

Explore the beautiful Snowy Mountains on over 100kms of marked trails suitable for all standards.

 

Snow Shoeing

 

For something different try strapping on some snow shoes and exploring the area by foot. Snow shoes can be hired or purchased in Jindabyne or the Perisher Centre. Guided tours (including night tours) are also available.

 

Tobogganing

 

Guests may use the Chalet's toboggans free of charge or hire them from most of the usual ski hire outlets. A designated toboggan area is located to the right of the carpark, or there are suitable areas right outside the Chalet.

 

Tube Town

 

Perisher's own snow tubing park offers an exhilarating ride down a groomed slope on ski biscuits.


Groomer Tours

 

Ride in one of Perisher's $450,000 snow groomers on night skiing nights - Tuesday and Saturday.


Dining/Shopping

 

Perisher offers a huge range of dining opportunities on and around the slopes, as well as good service facilities including a post office, supermarket, medical centre and police. Retail outlets include a newsagency, pharmacy, jeweller, bottle shop, gift shop, snow gear hire and sales, and wireless internet and kiosk.
