What's Happening At Perisher In 2010 (08-Feb-10)

Perisher, Australia, Feb 8th, 2010 - Perisher has been busy over the summer

Perisher has been busy over the summer months upgrading and enhancing its facilities and services to further improve guest experiences.

Here are some of the highlights:

• Purchase of over $500,000 of additional hire equipment for the various Perisher Snowsports Hire outlets.

• Purchase of a Prinoth Bison X snow grooming machine to modernise Australia's biggest grooming fleet.

• Significant mountain summer-grooming to smooth out runs and lift-loading areas and new snow fences to improve our already great snow!

• Expansion of the Mt Perisher snowmaking system providing better access from Happy Valley to Mt Perisher, as well as an extension of the Happy Valley T-bar, making the return access from Mt Perisher easier.

• Numerous environmental initiatives including the electrification of the Leichhardt and Wentworth lifts.

• Creation of the place to be in 2010! Visit the new Curve Bar on the upper level of the Perisher Centre.

• Reopening of the Happy Valley Kiosk, a great place for a snack while exploring the mountain.
