Perisher has announced it is extending its season until Sunday 13 October, with a natural snow base of 2.25 metres recorded by Snowy Hydro at Spencers Creek. That is the second deepest natural snow base recorded since 2000 prompting the resort to extend, giving skiers and boarders longer access to the incredible riding conditions.
Perisher’s early opening, Friday 31 May and extended close, Sunday 13 October has resulted in the 2019 season being Perisher’s longest ski season in memory at 136 days.
