Saturday Freshies – Another 20cm Overnight!!.
Hold your hats folks, the late season 'sprinter' blizzard continues this morning with moderate snowfalls, strong winds and poor visibility on the higher slopes. We expect to operate 12 lifts but keep an eye on the Lift Report for up-to-date information as some lifts may go on wind-hold.

After another 20cm of fresh snow since 9am yesterday it brings this late season storm total to a whopping 40cm! Snow is predicted to continue through the morning, but conditions should ease later in the day. If you're heading towards the mountain, please take it easy due to low level snow and keep an eye on the Road Report.

A reminder, due to the physical distancing requirements of our COVID-19 Safe Operating Plan there is limited indoor shelter available at Perisher.
