Perishers encompasses four different ski areas making it not only Australia’s largest ski resort, but the largest in the Southern Hemisphere. With so many options, Perisher is guaranteed to have terrain to satisfy shredders of all levels.
Owned by Vail Resorts, one of the biggest ski resort management companies in the United States, Perisher has really utilised its massive size to ensure that no matter the conditions, visitors will never run out of things to do.
The 47 lifts perfectly link the seven mountains, and with 133 marked trails you can come back year after year and keep finding new turns. At night the lights turn on over the slopes, so you can maximise your ski hours.
If you need a break from carving downhill, Perisher has an excellent cross-country skiing network of trails, and the ‘Ski Tube’ lets you leave the car at the accommodation and get around while avoiding snowy roads.
Perisher also has five world-class freestyle terrain parks, so those looking to get sendy will have no problem finding jumps, jibs or rails to keep their progression up.
If you are visiting Perisher, the best place to stay is in Jindabyne, as there isn’t much of an alpine village here
