Tame but fun

Matt06/04/2017
Perisher is a fun place. Whilst it may not have the vertical of thredbo it makes up for it in size and the different mountains on offer.

Perisher is definitely a tame resort and consists of smaller sized mountains and hills. This can be frustrating if boarding as some areas are almost flat and you may find yourself having to un-strap and push. It's ideal to know where to go and where not to, to avoid the flats.

Perisher can take days to fully explore, whilst most other resorts in Australia can be seen in half a day. The place has a nice vibe, especially over at Guthega with stunning views up to the highest mountains in Australia.

Snow quality is usualy better than thredbo due to the higher altitude but when there's a big fall then you can't go wrong at both. Can get crowded but because of the amount of lifts, the crowds get dispersed and spread out more than anywhere else in the country. Best to go during week days and avoid school holidays (like anywhere).

Perisher is fun...got to remember this is Australia...we don't have big mountains...so you find a different way to have fun. What it lacks in steeps and vertical it makes up in the variety of terrain...if you know the mountain you will know how to find the best snow...it varies greatly throughout the day so if you are prepared to cover the ground you will find the best conditions.

If you don't like Perisher then good, stay away...less people to get in the way...the crowds are the biggest drawback, but once you get the rhythm of the mountain you will find near empty runs and lifts on even the most crowded of days...
