Australian Ski Area Extends 2017 Ski Season

STORY BY Patrick Thorne 1st September 2017

Australia’s largest ski resort, Perisher, has announced it will extend its ski season by a week, thanks to some of the best September snow conditions on the country’s ski slopes in years.

“On the back of over 2 metres of snow falling through the month of August and plenty more snow forecast for next week  we are extending the season  through to the end of the New South Wales School Holidays.  The four-resort areas of Perisher, Blue Cow, Smiggin Holes and Guthega are all looking superb …And with the most amount of snow since 2012 it’s the best in years,” a resort statement issued on 1st September reads.

Australian ski centres had a mixed start to the season with early snowfall in May allowing most to open on or before the planned season start date in early June, but then had little snow for most of the rest of the month and in to July.  August saw two very big snowfalls however and the country’s leading resorts now have bases around the 1.5 metres mark, which is a very good figure in Australian skiing.  Up to 40cm more snow is expected this weekend.
