Perisher Kicks Off Southern Hemisphere Season
SAM Magazine-Jindabyne, New South Wales, Australia, May 18, 2011-Perisher Blue resort will open this Friday, making it the first resort to open in the Southern Hemisphere. Recent snowfalls coupled with cold temperatures for snowmaking have combined to allow the mountain to open weeks ahead of schedule. The resort will have a mini-terrain park on tap for opening day. Lift ticket prices will be reduced to AUD $30 for adults and AUD $15 for children, and the resort is donating all proceeds to charity.
